“I think it’s much more radical to see and show things as they look instead of making them somehow subversive through alienation or estrangement (Tillmans in interview with Isa Genzken, 2005). Reprint edition of the Turner Prize-winning German photographer’s exhibition catalog accompanying his first solo show held at the Kunsthalle Zürich in 1995. Establishing his reputation in the early 1990s as a pop culture “art star” with his intimate and playful snapshots of the queer club scene in London, this catalog encapsulates Tillmans’s earliest attempts to establish a more sophisticated body of work. Illustrated in black-and-white with Tillmans’s photos interspersed with found media, demonstrating his nascent exploration of photography as both a physical and immaterial medium. Text predominantly in German, with some English throughout. Fine. Item #3615
