After more than 15 exhibitions and eight international collaborative projects attracting over 100,000 visitors, JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION is now celebrating its 10th anniversary in June this year.

The anniversary exhibition titled Generation Loss is being conceived in collaboration with British artist Ed Atkins.

As a singularly holistic technology, video has maintained its status as the most popular medium. In the last decade the distribution of video has become simpler in terms of access, and more complex as regards the mode of distribution itself. The technological advances that account for these changes pervade artistic practice particularly, pragmatically as well as conceptually: Not only new reflexively approached formats abound, but new modes of behavior, communication and forms of representation, forms that are able to decisively alter our perception. Unique among art forms, artist moving image has always been singularly driven by the medium, as it moves within the mainstream—cleaving, albeit critically, to the technologies’ processes of fidelity and capitalistic progress.

The term Generation Loss generally refers to the process of a qualitative loss in successively copied data. Everything that reduces the representative quality as copies of data are made, can be regarded as a form of “generation loss.” However, this holds true not just for data formats or material media, but also manifests itself in an ideological sense in politics, culture, nature, from one generation to the next.

Across over 50 works, Generation Loss showcases the entire spectrum of the works in the collection. This will provide a unique and unprecedented overview of the structure of the history and the historicity of the JULIA STOSCHEKCOLLECTION.
