| Urbanity and city life as reflected in the mirror of contemporary art
This extensive publication documents new works acquired for the Julia Stoschek Collection in recent years as well as site-specific interventions in its exhibition space. Rather than a thematic concept, the forty-four works by thirty-five artists follow various content-related threads that reflect topical themes of contemporary art. The title, Cities of Gold and Mirrors, not only refers to the film by Cyprien Gaillard, but is also a metaphor for a confrontation with sociopolitical questions concerning urban development and urbanism, along with the relationship between human beings and architecture as well as their personal desires and vanities. Featuring works by Francis Alÿs, Olafur Eliasson, Cyprien Gaillard, Andreas Gursky, Nancy Holt, Mark Manders, Gordon Matta-Clark, Robin Rhode, Christoph Schlingensief, Wolfgang Tillmans, Andro Wekua, Christoph Westermeier, Tobias Zielony, and many others. Exhibition schedule: Julia Stoschek Collection, Düsseldorf, July 2011–July 2012
