Generation Loss

With fifteen exhibitions under its belt and over 100 000 visitors through its doors, the Julia Stoschek Collection is officially celebrating its 10th anniversary.

Opened in 2007 the Julia Stoschek Collection holds one of the most extensive private collections of media art in Germany, located in a historic factory building in Düsseldorf. Spanning over 2 500 square meters, the collection includes some of the most prominent artists on the media-art scene, as well as hosting annual exhibitions from internationally renowned artists.

To mark the occasion, the Julia Stoschek Collection teamed up with the British artist Ed Atkins to create the exhibition “Generation Loss”. Focusing on the ways in which generations of artists affect one another, the exhibition investigates how discourse plays with technology, how the influence from others can enforce revolt and revision, and how artists working within the medium of moving image deal with these issues.

Connecting each of the works in a candid approach, “Generation Loss” 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’”.

The full list of artists taking part in “Generation Loss include: 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.

In the collection’s first online exhibition on IC, we share installation views and artworks featured in “Generation Loss” (open until 29th July 2018).
