Julia Stoschek Foundation
Top European Collection of Media Art
The JULIA STOSCHEK FOUNDATION is a private collection of contemporary international art with a focus on time-based media.
Founded in 2007, the private collection boasts over 700 works by around 200 primarily European and US artists. The various substantive aspects covered by the collection are presented and documented in regular temporary exhibitions and publications. The steadily growing collection concentrates conceptually above all on the moving image in art from the 1960s to the present day and straddles various disciplines: video, single and multiple projections of analog and digital film material, multimedia environments as well as computer and Internet- based installations, but also ephemeral art forms, such as performances. To supplement the main Düsseldorf location, starting in June 2016 a temporary space will open to the public in Berlin. The exhibition area covers a full 2,500 sq.m. and is to be found in Berlin’s Mitte district at Leipziger Strasse 60 – in the building complex that formerly housed the Czech Cultural Center in East Germany. Most recently, the Konzulát club and the office community Konzulát-Studios was based here. By opening the satellite in Berlin, JULIA STOSCHEK FOUNDATION becomes the first private collection in Germany to have two publicly accessible locations at once - in Düsseldorf and Berlin. With works by: Ed Atkins, Neïl Beloufa, Hannah Black, Ian Cheng, Loretta Fahrenholz, Cao Fei, Melanie Gilligan, Camille Henrot, Juliana Huxtable, K-HOLE, Josh Kline, Helen Marten, Jon Rafman, Rachel Rose, Timur Si-Qin, Frances Stark, Hito Steyerl, Britta Thie, Wu Tsang, Amir Yatziv
From March 2023, the JULIA STOSCHEK FOUNDATION Berlin will open every first Thursday of the month between 6pm and 10pm. Admission is free on these evenings.
