Julia Stoschek’s collection of contemporary art includes installations, photographs, paintings, and sculptures, but the focus is on time-based media, specifically video works from the late 1960s to the present. Shown at a private exhibition space in Düsseldorf, her collection includes work by Ed Atkins, Lynda Benglis, Joan Jonas, Pipilotti Rist, and Bill Viola, among many others. “I am naturally drawn to the moving image, and I consider it to be a defining feature of our time: constantly changing, never standing still,” she once told the BMW Art Guide. Stoschek balances this focus on contemporaneity with attempts to find the interrelations between historical pieces and new art. She collects artists in depth.
