"Thomas Ruff has created a substantial photographic oeuvre, in which he draws our attention to all fields of contemporary life: petit bourgeois homes ... modernist and current architectural arts; the ... faces of our fellow human beings ... outer space; studies of local neighborhoods by night; the news industry's non-stop invention of pictures [photographs from German-language newspapers reproduced and printed by Ruff with no words of explanation in order to find out what information was left when the picture was isolated from its function] ... our bodies; and modifications in perception through the pictorial explosion on the Internet"--Page 7

Thomas Ruff : works 1979-2011 by Thomas Ruff( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thomas Ruff (born in 1958), from the Becher class of internationally renowned photo artists, is a master of conceptual photography. His work, which contains neither narrative nor anecdotal moments and makes equal use of analog and digital production techniques, is an expression of a thoroughly scientific working method, which dissects its object, reassembles it and in so doing combines analysis and original creation. He became known in the 1980s with oversized and hyperrealist color portraits of his friends and fellow students at Kunstakademie Düsseldorf. It was he who discovered the Diasec process for photography, a method borrowed from advertising of framing photographic prints and thus liberating the photograph from the ghetto of print cabinets. Since then, large-format photographic works have been proudly displayed on museum and gallery walls worldwide. [Title] presents selected photographs from all of the artist's series to date, starting with his small Interiors and large Portraits, to the starry skies and night shots, the nudes, recycled from pornographic material he found on the Internet, and abstract Substrates, to his stellar compositions based on astronomical photographs from ESO and NASA."--P [4] of cover
Photographic objects : Thomas Ruff, Wade Guyton, Seth Price, Kelley Walker, Spiros Hadjidjanos by Markus Kramer( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in German and English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Photographic Objects beschreibt erstmals wichtige konzeptuelle Verbindungen zwischen dem Werk von Thomas Ruff und der Arbeit einer jüngeren Künstlergeneration. Vor dem Hintergrund der andauernden Diskussion über das" Wesen der Fotografie"entwickelt der Autor einen neuen Ansatz zur medialen Abgrenzung des Fotografischen. Ausgehend vom Werk Thomas Ruffs wird eine für die zeitgenössische Kunstproduktion charakteristische und zwischenzeitlich breit gefächerte Entwicklung aufgezeigt. Bestimmendes Merkmal dieser Entwicklung ist die explizite Thematisierung technologischer Herstellungsprozesse im Rahmen indexikalisch-technologischer Transformationen von Input in Output. Die detaillierte Bebilderung des Buches bietet einen umfassenden Überblick über die Arbeiten von Thomas Ruff, Wade Guyton, Seth Price, Kelley Walker und Spiros Hadjidjanos. Die entwickelte Theorie bildet einen konzeptuellen Rahmen für die Diskussion neuester künstlerischer Praxen, beispielsweise des Werks von Tauba Auerbach, Anders Clausen, Oliver Laric, Jon Rafman, Michael Riedel, Jeremy Shaw, DAS INSTITUT (Kerstin Brätsch/Adele Röder), Jürgen Staack

Thomas Ruff : stellar landscapes by Thomas Ruff( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in German and English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Landesmusem für Kunst und Kulturgeschichte in Münster zeigt die Ausstellung Stellar Landscapes von Thomas Ruff, einem der gegenwärtig international bekanntesten Fotokünstlern Deutschlands. Zu sehen sind Arbeiten aus insgesamt vier Fotoserien von Ruff, aus der zwischen 1989 und 1992 entstandenen Serie Sterne, aus Zycles von 2007, Cassini von 2008/2009 und aus der aktuellen Serie ma.r.s.. Bereits 1989 hat es Ruff, der von Ende der Siebziger- bis Mitte der Achtzigerjahre bei Bernd und Hilla Becher an der Düsseldorfer Kunstakademie studierte, aufgegeben, selbst den Auslöser zu drücken. Seine Kamera legte der 1958 geborene Künstler weg und griff stattdessen zu bereits vorhandenem Bildmaterial, das er sich seitdem durch Bearbeitung zu eigen macht. Den Arbeiten, die in Münster zu sehen sind, liegt wissenschaftliches Bildmaterial, wie man es größtenteils kostenlos im Internet herunterladen kann, zugrunde. Für die Serie Sterne fasst Ruff sein Ausgangsmaterial kaum an. Lediglich den Bildausschnitt bestimmt er. Für Cassini und ma.r.s. hingegen greift er tief in die digitale Bearbeitungskiste. Auf Flügen ins All entstandene schwarz-weiße NASA-Aufnahmen werden coloriert und verlieren ihre wissenschaflich-sachliche Wirkung zugunsten einer malerischen
