Wolfgang Tillmans by Peter Halley( Book )

14 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Turner-prize winning Wolfgang Tillmans is a superstar of 1990s photography. This is the only book to cover his entire career, from the best-selling debut portraits in 1995 at the age of 24, to his most recent, abstract works. Large colour photographs such as Lutz and Alex Sitting in the Trees (1992), of a couple - naked save for their incongruous raincoats - perched in a tree are emblems of his generation. Tillmans has more recently expanded his practice to include found photography as well as large installations reminiscent of the collage techniques of the 1960s Conceptual artists." "American artist and theorist Peter Halley discusses with the artist his rapidly changing role, from mid 199Os Wunderkind to established master of the 'new photography' today. German critic Jan Verwoert surveys the artist's many genres and styles, spanning abstract and figurative imagery. Japanese critic and curator Midori Matsui analyses in her Focus a single project, Concorde (1997), a room-size installation and artist's book which records the daily passing of this epoch-making aeroplane. Extracts from a nineteenth-century Quaker text by Caroline Stephen on divine inspiration comprise the Artist's Choice. In the Artist's Writings Wolfgang Tillmans' art is reflected in his diary entries, fragments of text from his installations and project notes."--Jacket

Wolfgang Tillmans by Wolfgang Tillmans( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and German and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In seinem künstlerischen Schaffen hat Wolfgang Tillmans (*1968 in Remscheid) das Medium der Fotografie in einer bisher nie gesehenen Weise revolutioniert und auf andere Medien hin geöffnet. Beginnend in den frühen 1990er-Jahren dokumentierte Tillmans in Szenen aus London, New York oder Berlin die Menschen und Situationen seines direkten Umfeldes und schuf so auf stilprägende Weise das Porträt einer neuen Generation. Seit den späten 1990er-Jahren fertigt Tillmans vermehrt kameralose, abstrakte Fotografien an, die aus einer direkten Arbeit mit und auf dem Fotopapier hervorgehen. Zum Teil erlangen diese Bilder einen skulpturalen, objekthaften Charakter. Auch im Ausstellungskontext entwickelte er neuartige, antihierarchische Installationsformen seiner Bilder im Raum. Anlässlich einer umfassenden Ausstellung von Tillmans’ Werk in der Basler Fondation Beyeler erscheint dieses Katalogbuch, welches seine Arbeiten in bisher nie gesehener Weise ordnet und gruppiert (Englische Ausgabe ISBN 978-3-7757-4329-7)

If one thing matters, everything matters by Wolfgang Tillmans( Book )

13 editions published in 2003 in 3 languages and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wolfgang Tillmans (b. 1968) is one of the most significant European artists at work today. His informal and apparently spontaneous photographs of gay pride activists, ecowarriors, and clubbers brought him attention at an early age and eventually won him acclaim as a chronicler of his generation." "Tillmans's work spans the genres of landscape, cityscape, portraiture, and still life. He focuses on the overlooked details of life - a bunch of keys in a door, the chaotic sprawl in an open cabinet - and the grand sweep of natural phenomena, including solar eclipses and electrical storms. Packed with more than 2,000 color illustrations, this book features a fascinating interview with curator Mary Horlock in which Tillmans reveals the art historical connections and the common themes that unite his disparate work." "Published to coincide with a major exhibition at Tate Britain, If One Thing Matters, Everything Matters presents the most comprehensive survey of Tillman's work to date. Conceived and designed by the artist, it demonstrates a continually developing vision, constantly embracing new ideas and offering fresh perspectives on the world around us."--Jacket
Wolfgang Tillmans : lighter by Wolfgang Tillmans( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in German and English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since winning the Turner Prize in 2000 for his 1990s oeuvre of portraits and snapshots, German-born photographer Wolfgang Tillmans has increasingly gravitated towards the abstract and material-specific properties of his medium. Following Blushes, the Freischwimmer series and the monochromatic Silver series, his most recent abstract works--of which the creased and folded Lighter series is perhaps the most significant--treat the photograph, and especially photographic paper itself, no longer as a reproductive medium, but as a material object. In Tillmans' "paper drop" photographs, the paper's physical folds and curves are photographed to produce geometric, tactile compositions. Other works oscillate more elusively between photograph and object, always thriving in the interplay. "For me, the abstract picture is already objective because it's a concrete object and represents itself," Tillmans observes; "the paper on which the picture is printed is for me an object, there is no separating the picture from that which carries it. That's why I like to show photographs sometimes framed and sometimes not, just taped to the wall." These most recent works are gathered for the first time in this book. Lighter also includes an extensive section of installation views--taken by Tillmans himself--that offers the reader a direct experience of the artist's visual cosmos as presented in recent exhibitions, including his last retrospective, which was seen at various major venues in the United States

Tiré du site Internet de Walther König: "Vor einem guten Jahr besuchte Wolfgang Tillmans die Berliner Messe "Fruit Logistica", das führende Branchentreffen der internationalen Fruchthandelswelt. "Dort gingen mir die Augen über angesichts der verrückten Displays und der Vielfalt und Komplexheit des internationalen Fruchthandels und seiner Verarbeitungsmaschinen. Darauf reagierte ich sofort mit der Kamera, habe die Bilder aber dann erstmal liegen lassen, um sie mit Abstand betrachten zu können, obwohl ich gleich an ein Künstlerbuch im "Concorde"- Format dachte". Jetzt liegt es vor !"
