Wolfgang Tillmans by Jan Verwoert( Book )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 223 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 1990s 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 )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and German and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This publication accompanies Fondation Beyeler?s survey on the great photographic innovator Wolfgang Tillmans (born 1968). Tillmans first made a name for himself in the early 1990s, with photographs that captured an entire generation and a youth culture of which he was part, and which are now iconic images of that era. However, he quickly expanded his focus, creating works with and without a camera, producing photographs printed as C-prints on photographic paper, as inkjet prints on paper, or as photocopies. Some of these photographs acquire a sculptural, objectlike quality. Tillmans has also developed new compositional and formal, anti-hierarchical ways of installing his pictures in spaces. This substantial volume offers a comprehensive overview of his achievements."--Amazon
John Waters : indecent exposure by Kristen Hileman( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This retrospective monograph will examine John Waters's influential career with a focus on the photographs, sculpture, soundworks, and video he has made since the early 1990s, works that deploy the artist's renegade humor to reveal the ways that mass media and celebrity embody cultural attitudes, moral codes, and shared tragedy. Waters has long been on the leading edge of a broadened understanding of American individualism, particularly as it relates to queer identity, racial equality, and freedom of expression. In bringing "bad taste" to the walls of galleries and museums, he tugs at the curtain of exclusivity that can divide art from human experience. The carefully selected works featured in this publication are organized around themes including the artist's childhood and identity; Pop culture and the movie business; a satirical consideration of the contemporary art world; and the transgressive power of images. Essays will be provided by Baltimore Museum of Art Senior Curator Kristen Hileman; art historian and activist Jonathan David Katz; critic, curator, and artist Robert Storr; as well as an interview with Waters by photographer Wolfgang Tillmans"--

Wolfgang Tillmans : lighter by Wolfgang Tillmans( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in 3 languages and held by 75 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

5 editions published in 2012 in 3 languages and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tiré de la couv.: "Inkjet printing is the most common technology used to create images for trade fairs. Indeed, almost all visible surfaces at such fairs are covered with digital prints. At the FESPA Digital, one of the largest trade fairs for digital printing with over 400 exhibitors from around the world, the medium itself is the subject. The exhibitors at the fair, which took place in Barcelona this year, favour brightly coloured images in their stand design. An onslaught of colours awaits the visitor. The Fruit Logistica in Berlin is the leading international trade fair for the fresh produce industry. Roughly 2'400 businesses from over 80 countries are represented. In addtion to the fruits themselves, innovations in the areas of packaging and processing technologies are also highlighted. The trade fair halls are organized by region. Mediterranean countries and central and northern Europe are most prominently represented. Displays of fruits and inkjet prints of fruits compete for attention. The 2012 Fruit Logistica innovation awarded to a seedless bell pepper."

Tillmans s'intéresse aux activistes politiques, aux homosexuels, aux ravers, aux punks et aux hétérosexuels, Chez lui, les frontières entre la photographie mise en scène et la photo de reportage sont effacées et ses travaux sont dans un sens un témoignage subjectif, une narration de son propre environnement. Mais au delà de ces considérations, ces photographies restituent sa dignité à une génération
