Synopsis: At just over 430 pages, this monumental and beautifully designed new monograph presents the most comprehensive view of the London-based photographer Wolfgang Tillmans' work to date, featuring many photographic works and abstract "paintings" from the past five years that have never been published before.
When he is working on an exhibition or a publication, Tillmans displays and combines pictures on long tables in his studio so that the images are "held in position only by their own weight. The method of laying out two-dimensional objects on a table produces 'clarity' and allows perspective. A new text emerges through the combination of intrinsically different pieces of paper. The issues dealt with on these tables do not claim to be fully comprehensive and the items chosen do not profess to be definitive examples of their kind. Rather, this multivocal process allows me to amplify voices I feel need strengthening, contrasting them with their opposites and their neighbors." This method has become a concept. In Manual the artist combines his own photographs, painterly works and texts together with already existing newspaper articles to create an associative, comprehensive view. The material is condensed into a complex artistic dialogue with various social and political themes, like AIDS or the question of absolute truth, which the artist has been exploring for years.

About the Author: Wolfgang Tillmans was born in Remscheid, Germany in 1968 and studied at Bournemouth & Poole College of Art and Design. He is widely regarded as one of the most influential artists of his generation. His work, whilst appearing to capture the immediacy of the moment and character of the subject, also examines the dynamics of photographic representation. From the outset he ignored the traditional separation of art exhibited in a gallery from images and ideas conveyed through other forms of publication, giving equal weight to both. His expansive floor to ceiling installations feature images of subcultures and political movements, as well as portraits, landscapes, still-lives and abstract imagery varying in scale from postcard- to wall-sized prints. His work has been shown at the Museum of Modern Art, New York in 1996 and Tate Britain, London, in a major retrospective in 2003. He was awarded the Turner Prize in 2000.

Book Description In seinem neuesten Künstlerbuch ordnet Tillmans eigene Fotografien und Texte sowie vorgefundene Zeitungsartikel zu einer assoziativen Gesamtschau an. Diese Arbeitsweise wird hier zum Konzept, das Buch zur Installation: Das Material verdichtet sich zu einer komplexen künstlerischen Auseinandersetzung mit unterschiedlichen sozialen und politischen Themen, die der Künstler schon seit Jahren verfolgt. Tillmans schafft damit eine überzeugende Ergänzung zu seinen rein fotografischen Arbeiten. Mit »Manual« assoziiert er ein Handbuch zur Erforschung der sichtbaren Welt. Es versteht sich aber auch als umfangreiche Anleitung zu Tillmans' Œuvre, als Kompendium, in dem der Künstler seine persönliche Sicht auf die eigene Arbeit vorstellt. Text/Gestaltung von Wolfgang Tillmans. Dt.-engl. Ausgabe. 21,6 x 31,5 cm, 432 S., durchgeh. Farbabb., geb. Seller Inventory # 389587
