Art Diary

Works from the Julia Stoschek Collection

22 May 2020

While museums around the world are shuttered due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Apollo’s usual weekly pick of exhibition openings will be replaced by a selection of digital initiatives providing virtual access to art and culture.

One of the world’s largest private collections of time-based media art – work that is often well suited to, if not directly intended for, the online realm – the Julia Stoschek Collection (which has spaces in Berlin and Düsseldorf, with the latter scheduled to reopen on 6 June) is being made available to view for free on the foundation’s website. Some 65 works, of a total of 860 in the collection, have already been been added to an Online Collection Catalogue. This adds up to more than 15 hours of film and video art ready to be watched now, with new additions being made each week. The catalogue can be searched according to artist or artwork, and so far videos are available from Barbara Hammer, Fischli and Weiss, and Wolfgang Tillmans, among others. Visit the Julia Stoschek Collection website for the full catalogue.
