Julia Stoschek - Collection
The second exhibition of works from the Julia Stoschek Collection bears the title “Number Two: Fragile”.
The exhibition focuses on corporeality in videos, installations and photography, an aspect of art that has been explored intensively since the 1960s and 70s, in particular within the genres of Body Art and Performance.
The 54 works in the show were selected to shed light on the themes of self-dramatisation, pain, transformation, physicality in the sense of a plasticity that can be experienced as a real, external phenomenon, and also fragility in a literal way. Although the exhibition is unified by these overarching themes, it also allows viewers to discern the positions of the individual artists, since most of them are represented by several pieces.
