Artist 

Based in Berlin and London, the German artist Wolfgang Tillmans (born 1968) is currently considered one of the world’s most influential photo artists. He started to take photographs during his teen years and in the early 1990’s worked for youth and lifestyle magazines such as Spex and The Face. In 1992, Tillmans had his breakthrough with the documentation of the Berlin Love Parade for the British lifestyle magazine i-D.

Within the artist‘s universe, reality is fragmented in a multitude of images which all integrate into a multi-layered formal and textual reference system. The subjects themselves nevertheless are extremely diverse: ranging from photo-scenes from the techno scene, pornographic images, still lifes, landscape photographs, to colour abstractions. His works include snapshot-like photographs, which capture a brief moment as well as carefully staged images and works, which entirely originated in the dark room. Tillmans‘ continuous questioning and further developing of the medium of photography turned him into one of the most influential cause variables in the history of photography.
