JSC Düsseldorf has launched a new series of exhibitions under the title JSC ON VIEW, which will explicitly focus on works from the JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION. Through the first exhibition in this series, the JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION pays tribute to the work of three important female artists who have recently passed away: Lutz Bacher, Barbara Hammer and Carolee Schneemann.

The presentation will span the entire ground floor of JSC Düsseldorf, and include central video and film works from the artists as well as Lutz Bacher’s series of large-format photographs, Sex with Strangers (1986).

While Lutz Bacher, who masked her identity behind a male pseudonym, took a deliberately defensive position against the classification of her work in the feminist context, Carolee Schneemann’s performance-based, kinetic painting and experimental practice emphasized the social discourse on corporeality and gender roles. Barbara Hammer, on the other hand, is a pioneer of queer cinema. Hammer’s experimental films break with conventional narrative film, which she considered too limited to represent lesbian and homosexual realities.
