WELT AM DRAHT is the title of the first presentation in the new temporary JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION satellite at Leipziger Strasse 60 in Berlin’s Mitte district. In line with the JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION’s insistence that it be contemporary, the exhibition is devoted to media-based pieces that address the influences and changes in our social reality, identity and environment since digitalisation.
In 38 main pieces by 20 international artists all drawn from the JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION, starting with large video installations, sculptural works, a performance, a monumental live simulation through to a purpose-made piece by artist collective K-HOLE the exhibition highlights current art strategies and a completely new artistic formal idiom first enabled by the latest technologies.
