Opening of the exhibition Stan Douglas, SPLICING BLOCK
The JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION is pleased to be presenting an exhibition of works by the renowned Canadian artist Stan Douglas (*1960, Vancouver) in Berlin.
Since the late 1980s, Stan Douglas has been creating films, photographs, and installations, as well as recently venturing into theater productions and other multidisciplinary projects, exploring the parameters of their respective mediums. The artist queries the past in his works, breaking through traditional narrative structures to blur fact and fiction.
The exhibition SPLICING BLOCK focuses on the relationship between music and society while simultaneously being a reflection on the media of film and photography. The works on display reconstruct and reimagine the 1970s, centering on (de)colonization, migration, jazz, underground disco, and Afrobeat.
Curated by Paola Malavassi, Head of JSC Berlin.
