Andreas Gursky by Peter Galassi( Book )

17 editions published in 2001 in 3 languages and held by 776 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Andreas Gursky' s large color photographs vividly encapsulate our world of high-tech industry, global markets, easy travel, and slick commerce. Gursky has tracked the contemporary zeitgeist from his native Germany to such far-flung places as Hong Kong, Brasilia, Cairo, New York, Shanghai, Stockholm, Tokyo, Paris, Singapore, and Los Angeles. His subjects include international stock exchanges, vast hotels and apartment buildings, sporting championships and parliaments, and midnight raves attended by casts of thousands." "This large-format book is published to accompany the first American retrospective of Gursky's work, at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, in the spring of 2001. Its full-page plates and generous details survey the artist's career from 1984 to the present. Peter Galassi's richly illustrated essay provides the first in-depth study of the artistic contexts, working methods, and evolution of Gursky's photography. The book concludes with a detailed Exhibition Chronology and Bibliography."--Jacket

"Famed worldwide for his epically proportioned photographs, Andreas Gursky is one of very few contemporary artists able to represent cultures of excessive information--which he does through images of supermarket wares, crowds, trash, architecture and nature. The extreme detail of Gursky's final image--achieved by digital restructuring--produces a vertiginous effect on the viewer, as it oscillates between total representation and total abstraction. It could be said that Gursky updates the eighteenth-century sublime for our times. This publication surveys the artist's most recent creations, on display at the renowned Kunstmuseum Basel throughout the winter of 2007/2008. Two new groups of works in particular, one on Formula 1 races and the other on the famous Arirang Festival (a closely choreographed mass spectacle in North Korea's capital of Pyongyang), are gathered here."--Publisher description

Andreas Gursky (*1955 in Leipzig) gehört seit vielen Jahren zu den bedeutendsten Fotokünstlern weltweit. Mit dieser Monografie wird der Versuch unternommen, das Œuvre des Künstlers in seiner ganzen enzyklopädischen Breite aufzufächern. Gursky wählte mehr als 150 Werke aus seinem Bilderfundus aus, der bis in seine Studienzeit an der Folkwang Hochschule Essen und anschließend an der Kunstakademie Düsseldorf in der Klasse von Bernd und Hilla Becher zurückreicht. Angefangen bei den frühesten Arbeiten, wie den Pförtnerlogen und weiteren unveröffentlichten Fotografien, spannt sich ein gewaltiger Bogen bis zu den jüngeren Werken. In Gurskys enzyklopädischer Morphologie bildet jede einzelne Fotografie einen notwendigen Mosaikstein, und über eine Zeitspanne von 28 Jahren ergibt sich daraus eine umfassende Sicht auf die globale Welt
