German photographer Wolfgang Tillmans (b. 1968) first received critical acclaim in the 1990s for his arresting images of youth culture. He has recently embraced a much broader range of subject matter, from intimate still lifes to camera-less abstractions. He produces photographs in varying sizes and techniques, and displays them in provocative, unconventional, and carefully conceived installations. In this lecture, Tillmans will discuss past and current projects.
The Busch-Reisinger Museum Lectures, sponsored by the German Friends of the Busch-Reisinger Museum, present important speakers on topics of central and northern European art.
