The New York Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) honors the German photo artist Wolfgang Tillmans (54) with a large exhibition. Around 350 works from the past 40 years, including photos, videos and multimedia installations, can be seen from tomorrow until January 1, 2023 in the show “Wolfgang Tillmans: To look without fear” in the renowned museum in Manhattan. After that, the exhibition will move on to Toronto and San Francisco.
Born in Remscheid, Germany, Tillmans is also heavily involved in social causes and became known in the early 1990s for his photographs of youth and pop culture. He is now one of the most important contemporary artists and has already received awards such as the Kaiserring from the city of Goslar and the British Turner Prize.
“What moved me is to take pictures that describe how it feels to live today,” said Tillmans of the German Press Agency. With the exhibition, he wants to encourage visitors to “use their eyes freely”: “To change perspective, to look at things from different rating scales.” The show at MoMA is a great honor for him, Tillmans said. “It’s something you might hope for as an artist, but you can never expect or demand it. In that respect I am modestly grateful.”
