Cities of Gold and Mirrors
Jul 2, 2011–Summer, 2012


From 25 June 2011, the JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION will be presenting selected works in a newly designed exhibition.

The show features 44 works by 35 artists in all, including many that have never been shown before, works acquired in the past few years and site-specific spatial interventions. Each work is presented in its own, carefully elaborated setting.
Rather than being organised around a single theme, the exhibition picks up on several content strands and reflects current themes in contemporary art.
Its title, CITIES OF GOLD AND MIRRORS, taken from a film by Cyprien Gaillard shown in the exhibition is a metaphor for the fact that the pieces on display explore socio-political questions relating to urban development, humankind’s relationship to architecture, and our own personal vanities and desires.
