NUMBER TWELVE: HELLO BOYS
NUMBER TWELVE: HELLO BOYS draws a line from the feminist video and performance pioneers of the 1970s to selected contemporary positions among female photographers and video artists. The exhibition featuring works from the JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION has borrowed its title from that of Hannah Wilke’s video performance HELLO BOYS (1975), which it also takes as the curatorial starting point for the perception and representation of female identity. A large number of female artists used video, which was then still a new medium, to document their performance-based works. To the exhibition
NUMBER ELEVEN: CYPRIEN GAILLARD
Cyprien Gaillard often starts a new work by seeking out artefacts, monuments or architectural creations which seem to have lost their significance in the present time. His nomadic gaze takes in backdrops both urban and natural, manicured or wild, focussing on spots where beauty has evolved from decay or where violence has left scars on the landscape. Thus the artist vividly depicts the times and places where our present-day economic and cultural needs interact with architectural legacies or the cultural heritage of a region. Each of Gaillard’s film works orbits in its own ways the myths surrounding the various settings, describing how outworn utopian urges or belief systems collide with current social conditions and political realities. To the exhibition
NUMBER TEN: TRISHA DONNELLY
The JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION is pleased to present, in its eighth year, its tenth exhibition with a selection of works by US-American artist Trisha Donnelly (born 1974). The presentation comprises works from the collection ranging from moving image, photography, sound installation to sculpture. The ensemble is creating a space saturated with a potential for transformations and reconfigurations of the senses, of realities. To the exhibition
THE NEW HUMAN
THE NEW HUMAN is a video-based exhibition project that artistically explores feelings of uncertainty, frustration, fear, bewilderment and confusion about the human condition today. It also gives a glimpse of some imagined scenarios of our future. The project has been made possible through a substantial collaboration between Moderna Museet Malmö and the JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION in Düsseldorf. The work presented in the project has been produced since the turn of the last millennium and spans from seminal contemporary classics to very recent productions. To the exhibition
From March 31 until August 29, 2015 on the occassion of the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Germany and Israel key works from the JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION will be presented in the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. The exhibition will constitute the largest presentation of time-based media works in Israel. The exhibition title is borrowed from Adrian Paci's 2004 work TURN ON, allowing multiple, ambiguous associations with actions ranging from switching on, operating, and lighting to igniting, provoking, and titillating.

JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION will be presenting the two-channel video installation A day in the life of bliss (2014) by American artist, performer and filmmaker Wu Tsang (born 1982, lives and works in Los Angeles) in its Düsseldorf collection building on the occasion of Art Cologne 2015.

NATHALIE DJURBERG & HANS BERG, THE EXPERIMENT, JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION, 8 April - 1 June 2014
To coincide with Art Cologne 2014, JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION will be showing Nathalie Djurberg’s and Hans Berg's three-channel video installation THE EXPERIMENT in the Collection premises in Düsseldorf.
Djurberg (born 1978 in Lysekil, Sweden) creates animated films that fascinate, amuse, disturb and shock. In her work she looks at the dark side of the human psyche – running through the whole gamut of perversions, sexual violence, fear, arrogance and vanity in a way that is both full of irony and at the same time almost painful to watch.

NUMBER FOUR: DEREK JARMAN-SUPER8, JULIA STOSCHEK FOUNDATION E.V., Duesseldorf. 11 September 2010 - 26 February 2011
The JULIA STOSCHEK FOUNDATION e.V., in collaboration with James Mackay, and as part of the Quadriennale 2010 in Duesseldorf, presents the first comprehensive retrospective of the experimental film works of Derek Jarman from his Super8 archives. It represents the first solo exhibition of an artist in the JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION. The British painter, film maker, set designer and writer Derek Jarman (1942–1994) is best known to the wider public primarily as the director of stylistically influential feature films and music videos from the 1980s and early 1990s. Less well-known, but vital to his oeuvre, are the over 60 Super8 films that Jarman filmed from 1970 until his death in 1994. Taken from the subjective-personal perspective of his hand-held camera, the scenic arrangements mediate Jarman’s artistic approach in which life and art constantly connect with one another as a matter of course.

The "Just Project" was established in May 2003 together with the Just Düsseldorf e.V. artist grant as an exhibition and event venue for young artists. It was primarily intended to support artists whose work contributes to contemporary artistic discourse and who engage with current developments in society. The artist-in-residence grant encouraged exchange between visiting artists both from Germany and abroad and the local art scene.
After three years, the Just Düsseldorf e.V. artist grant bowed out in 2006 with the event and exhibition series “4 x 2”. To the Just Project
