WOLFGANG TILLMANS | PAPER DROP (GREEN), 2008
ABOUT THE WORK
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Wolfgang Tillmans, born 1968 in Remscheid, Germany and now based in Berlin and London, is one of the most influential artists working today in his chosen medium of photography. Through his candid photographic depiction of the club and youth culture of the late 1980s and 90s, Tillmans quickly became the Wunderkind of the art world. However, it was by his departure from observational photography to a more encompassing perspective of the medium that he established himself as a highly respected and often emulated artist.
Wolfgang Tillmans was the first non-British artist to receive the prestigious Turner prize. In 2017, he was represented with solo shows in some of the most renowned institutions, among them Tate Modern, Fondation Beyeler, MoMA and MoMA Ps1, Kunstverein Hamburg, and most recently at IMMA Dublin and Wiels, Brussels (2019-2020) with a comprehensive survey of his work.
