We are happy to announce that renowned art collector Julia Stoschek will be a speaker at THE ARTS+ Conference this coming October! Her collection focuses on time-based media art and includes works by Douglas Gordon, Marina Abramović, Cyprien Gaillard and many more.
Before becoming one of the most renowned art collectors in Germany, Julia Stoschek studied Business Management in Bamberg. She began collecting art in 2003, when she bought her first piece by Spanish artist Pep Agut, but quickly she began to focus on time-based media art, the youngest in art history. It was MTV that made her realize that digitisation is so important, also for her generation, hence explaining her passion for time-based media art.
In 2007 she opened the JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION, which now gathers over 700 works of art by a wide range of artists including Marina Abramović, Eleanor Antin, Elizabeth Price, Olafur Eliasson, Bruce Nauman and many more. Her international private collection has a strong focus on time-based media art and has an ongoing exhibition program in Düsseldorf. But just a week weeks ago Julia also opened a temporary supplement “Welt am Draht” in Berlin (open until September 18th).
Julia Stoschek is part of the Board of Directors at KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Member of the Acquisitions Commission at Kunstsammlung NRW, Member of the Board of Directors at MoMA/PS 1, New York and more. She is also a shareholder of the automotive supplier giant Brose Group, and great-granddaughter of the founder of the company.
