Unbound: Performance as Rupture
September 14, 2023–July 28, 2024

“Unbound: Performance as Rupture” examines how different generations of artists have called upon the body in relation to the camera to refuse oppressive ideologies, disrupt historical narratives, and unsettle concepts of identity. Setting works from the Julia Stoschek Collection in dialogue with loans, the exhibition traces various intersections of performance and video art from the late 1960s to today, focusing on how they create specific forms of rupture, fracture, and pause.

Double Feature: Young-jun Tak
September 3–December 17, 2023, JSF Düsseldorf
September 14–December 17, 2023, JSF Berlin

Double Feature is a new series of solo presentations by emerging artists, which will take place across JSF Berlin and Düsseldorf simultaneously. For its inaugural edition, Berlin-based artist Young-jun Tak presents two recent films, Wish You a Lovely Sunday (2021) and Wohin? (2022), which will play in a loop in the galleries. Both shot in Berlin, these works consider how place, architecture, movement, and belief inform community and queerness. More here.

Curated by Line Ajan & Lisa Long.

Young-jun Tak (b. 1989 in Seoul, South Korea) examines sociocultural and psychological mechanisms that shape belief systems. Mixing media, techniques, and subject matter, Tak pursues obfuscation as a mode of critique. In his videos, sculptures, and installations, Tak often exposes human bodies in the context of polarizing norms and conventions. He currently lives and works in Berlin.

The series Double Feature is supported by Team Global

Worldbuilding: Gaming and Art in the Digital Age
through December 17, 2023, JSF Düsseldorf

The Julia Stoschek Foundation presents the third expansion of “Worldbuildung,” an ongoing investigation of the relationship between gaming and time-based art, curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist. Starting September 2, 2023 on the occasion of the gallery festival DC Open, the final expansion of “Worldbuildung” will showcase works by Neïl Beloufa & EBBDebbie DingDominique Gonzalez-FoersterHarmony Korine, and Gabriel Massan. A special focus lies on Third World: The Bottom Dimension (2023) by Gabriel Massan, the first video game to enter the Julia Stoschek Collection. Reflecting upon Black Brazilian experience and the impacts of colonialism, extractivism, and environmental degradation, Third World: The Bottom Dimension by Gabriel Massan explores the possibilities of worldbuilding amid systems of inequality. The work was commissioned by Serpentine Galleries, where it is on view until October 22, 2023, with support by the Julia Stoschek Foundation. More here.
