Destroy, She Said was the title of the first exhibition in the Julia Stoschek Collection, the opening of which prompted a great deal of media coverage last summer in Düsseldorf. One of the show’s distinctive features was that the exhibition spaces were made to measure for a total of forty artistic positions by the Berlin architects Kühn Malvezzi, thus demonstrating the potential for the presentation of contemporary media-supported art.
This volume documents the exhibition and its remarkable architectural concept. All of the works—by artists such as Doug Aitken, Paul Chan, Robert Smithson, Monica Bonvicini, Natasha Sadr Hagidhian, Dara Birnbaum, Klara Liden, and Olafur Eliasson—are presented in texts and illustrations and situated in the larger context of this exquisite private collection. The book is completed by Daniel Birnbaum’s essay on current time-based art and crucial aspects of selected works from the Julia Stoschek Collection as well as by Kaye Geipel’s text dealing with the history and architecture of the century-old industrial building.
