Julian Rosefeldt, Two early 4-channel video works
visit the collection
Ivo Wessel (born 1965 in Paderborn) studied computer science and psychology in Braunschweig and moved to Berlin in 2000, because of the young and lively art scene. He is a software developer and programs applications for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch and Alexa skills for Amazon's echo devices, especially for artists and art institutions. For the past two years he has had a start-up in BEST HANDS, an online community for gift seekers and treasurers, and lovers of beautiful things. He has been collecting contemporary art and literature since school days and always tries to reconcile his three obsessions of art, books and computers. Ten years ago, together with gallerist Olaf Stüber, he launched "Videoart at Midnight," a project that shows video art on the big screen of Babylon Cinema; once a month on a Friday, always at midnight. His collection includes concrete painting, photography, conceptual art, media and video art. This year's focus will be on two early 4-channel video works by Julian Rosefeldt.
