10 JUNE 2017 – 10 JULY 2018


After more than 15 exhibitions and eight international collaborative projects attracting over 100,000 visitors, JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION is now celebrating its 10th anniversary in June this year. The anniversary exhibition titled “Generation Loss” is being conceived in collaboration with British artist Ed Atkins.


The term “Generation Loss” generally refers to the process of a qualitative loss in successively copied data. Everything that reduces the representative quality as copies of data are made, can be regarded as a form of ‘generation loss’. However, this holds true not just for data formats or material media, but also manifests itself in an ideological sense in politics, culture, nature, from one generation to the next.

The basic idea of the exhibition concept is to show the ways in which generations of artists affect one another; the discourses that awkwardly straddle technology-specific periods of artists’ moving image makers; how influence may auger revolt, revision, renewed accord; how artists’ moving image is a uniquely reactive, dependent medium whose intimacy with the vicissitudes of mainstream tech confers a kind of automatic collusion with the culture at large that is pretty much unique to it – to moving image works.


The exhibition will feauture works by Eleanor Antin, Ed Atkins & Simon Thompson, Charles Atlas, Lutz Bacher, Lynda Benglis, Bernadette Corporation, Johanna Billing, Dara Birnbaum, Hannah Black, Chris Burden, Matt Calderwood, Patty Chang, Ian Cheng, Jen DeNike, Nathalie Djurberg & Hans Berg, Cheryl Donegan, Trisha Donnelly, Cao Fei, Peter Fischli & David Weiss, Dara Friedman, Cyprien Gaillard, Douglas Gordon, Barbara Hammer, Christian Jankowski, Joan Jonas, Jesper Just, Imi Knoebel, Mark Leckey, Klara Lidén, Gordon Matta-Clark, Paul McCarthy, Lutz Mommartz, Bruce Nauman, Jon Rafman, Lucy Raven, Reynold Reynolds & Patrick Jolley, James Richards, Rachel Rose, Jack Smith, Wolfgang Tillmans, Ulay & Marina Abramović, Steina Vasulka, Klaus vom Bruch, Hannah Wilke, Jordan Wolfson, Tobias Zielony
