The JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION is one of the world’s most comprehensive private collections of time-based art, dedicated to the public presentation, advancement, conservation, and scholarship of media and performance practices. With over 850 artworks by 255 artists from around the world, the collection’s contemporary focus is rooted in artists’ moving image experiments from the 1960s and ’70s. Works in the collection span video, film, single- and multi-channel moving image installation, multimedia environments, performance, sound, and virtual reality. Photography, sculpture, and painting supplement its time-based emphasis. Characterized by an ever-growing technological convergence and an interdisciplinary approach, the collection is unique in its heterogeneity. Artworks from the collection have been presented in large-scale solo and group exhibitions at the JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION in Düsseldorf, Germany (JSC Düsseldorf) since 2007. In 2016, a second exhibition space opened in Berlin (JSC Berlin). Both locations are open to the public on weekends and by appointment. A wide range of public programs, comprised of tours, performances, screenings, lectures, artist talks, and workshops invite visitors and scholars to engage with time-based art on multiple levels and from various perspectives. Accessibility and mediation are central to the collection’s mission. Beginning in fall 2019, the collection will be gradually made available online, eventually leading to an open access digital collection platform.
