The Julia Stoschek Collection Berlin presents an exhibition of works by the renowned Canadian artist Stan Douglas (*1960, Vancouver). Since the late 1980s, Stan Douglas has been creating films, photographs, and installations, as well as 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. Stan Douglas: Splicing Block opened on 1 November 2019 and was supposed to run until 29 March 2020.
