Julia Stoschek / Jun 7 – Dec 6, 2020
Düsseldorf / Berlin, Germany

The final installment of Horizontal Vertigo’s screening program at Julia Stoschek Collection will present a selection of videos by artist duo Dorota Gawęda and Eglė Kulbokaitė. Rooted in feminist theory and fiction, the duo’s multidisciplinary work includes live performances, immersive installations, sculptural work, fragrances, and interventions into social media. The videos and fragrances featured in this screening are connected to the artists’ ongoing performance project YOUNG GIRL READING GROUP (YGRG). Through YGRG Gawęda and Kulbokaitė depict, examine, and contextualize the reading body, rendering it a site of active relations in which the interdependence of the text, the body, the environment, and technology unfold. Through YGRG, they strive to create a new sensibility toward reading as a form of embodied language and a collective practice.
