210610: Deichtorhallen Julia Stoschek Collection. I want to see how you see

Deichtorhallen Julia Stoschek Collection. I want to see how you see 16.04.10 - 25.07.10 Mrs. Captain and her art freight Collecting contemporary art permanently generates new questions on positions and theories of artists. The process-oriented exhibition “I want to see how you see” also mirrors the attentiveness and openness of the collector and founder of the collection. Born in 1975 in Cobourg, Julia Stoschek - shareholder of the Brose-Group, an automobile parts supplier - devotes most of her time to the collection. Since 2004, she has been one of the board members of the KW-Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin and in 2007, was appointed to the Trustee Committee on Media and Performance Art of the New York Museum of Modern Art as a member of the acquisition commission. During the last eight years, she has purchased 420 works created by renowned international artists for her own private collection, including innovative works by a younger and lesser-known generation. The company headquarters are located in a closed-down factory, which was reopened in 2007 as a private museum after being modified by the Berlin-based architects Kühn Malvezzi. The collector describes herself as an “eye person”, a smart understatement in view of the complexity of her collection and not so much an aesthetic inclination. Essential art productions created by women in the USA, Europe, and Africa over the course of the last four decades play an important role in Stoschek’s collection. For the first time, 65 works by 54 artists are presented outside Düsseldorf at the Große Deichtorhallen. The new director, Dirk Luckow, created an exhibition concept in which the collector performed as an advertising medium. On the left side of the main entrance, a 2.5m x 3.5 m banner depicts Julia Stoschek in a white tank top and with a captain’s hat, photographed by Gumppenberg & Bienert. The spectrum of the exhibition includes film, video, and photography dealing with topics such as pain, transformation, and utopia, as well as political and social changes. Among the works are “Shoot” (1971) by Chris Burden and the 14-minute video-statement “Art must be beautiful / Artist must be beautiful” (1975) by Marina Abramovic, as well as works by Vito Acconci, Doug Aitken, Björk, Monica Bonvicini, Robert Boyd, Gordon Matta-Clark, Patty Chang, Thomas Demand, Nathalie Djurberg, Andreas Gursky, Christian Jankowski, Terence Koh, Klara Liden, Alex McQuilkin, Bruce Nauman, Tony Oursler, Aura Rosenberg, Martha Rosler, Thomas Ruff, Christoph Schlingensief, Steina Vasulka und Franz West with „L28“ (2006).The exhibition title was taken from Pipilotti Rist’s video created in 2003. The walk-in installation “2-Dimensional Mirror Labyrinth” (2006) by Jeppe Hein, the three canal video by Isaac Julien “True North” (2004) which is projected onto three screens, as well as the two sculptures "Intstandvokati" and "Sondzela” (both 2008) created by Nandipha Mntambo are definitely worth seeing. Of not is the installation “Killing Machine” (2007) by Janet Cardiff and Georges Bures Miller, which, however, is not exhibited at the Deichtorhallen. The installation, which deals with the death penalty and Frank Kafka’s “The Penal Colony”, is on permanent loan to the MoMA. The 150-page exhibition catalogue is especially recommended for those who have less knowledge about media technology positions spanning from the 1970’s to the present day. The huge effort is a critical statement directed against museums and art associations that are under pressure on account of the continuously rising costs and simultaneously have become risk avers and lower their sights regarding sensitive topics. We live in a more or less educated information society, which is increasingly losing itself in its search for the meaning of life in a globalized world. Private collections are essential documentations on the interaction of outside reflections as well as self-reflection of contemporary trends.
