Rhine on the Dnipro


One of the biggest centers of modern art in Eastern Europe, PinchukArtCentre starts its third year of work with an amazing exhibition. It showcases 24 photographs by world-famous German photographer Andreas Gursky and 18 video installations from German patron Julia Stoschek’s collection. The project is dedicated to the Weeks of German Culture in Ukraine.
53-year-old Andreas Gursky is called “the eye of God” due to his special vision of reality. His photo collages created between 1987 and 2008 are mixes of skyscrapers, big office buildings, stock brokers, Formula 1 routes, interiors of galleries and clubs. His static photographs present a conceptual opposition to the mobile images of video art from Julia Stoschek Collection. Stoschek financed exhibitions in Museum of Modern Art and in Center of Modern art in New York. Last year she presented to the public her private collection based on new media – photos, videos and installations. In Kyiv we’ll see works of Bruce Nauman, a representative of 1960s classical video art, and works by modern masters of video art – Christian Jankowski and Robert Boyd.
