9783958293922: Andreas Gursky

An encyclopedic, dizzying vision of globalism: the definitive Gursky survey

Andreas Gursky has been widely celebrated for his monumental, extraordinarily detailed pictures, often exploring contemporary global themes. This comprehensive book takes a fresh look at the artist’s iconic images from the past four decades.

In a landmark conversation between two of the most significant figures in contemporary photography, Gursky talks to Jeff Wall about the sources for his photographic vision, while an essay by Hayward Gallery director Ralph Rugoff explores important but often neglected areas of the artist’s work. Essays by art historian Gerald Schröder and writer-curator Brian Sholis provide new insight into key pictures, and artist Katharina Fritsch offers personal snapshots of her Düsseldorf colleague, creating a portrait of the artist in the round. Presenting the artist’s best-known works―including “Paris, Montparnasse” (1993), “99 Cent” (2001) and “Chicago Board of Trade III” (2009)―as well as new, previously unpublished photographs, this is an indispensable survey of 40 years of work from one of the world’s most influential artists.

Regarded as one of the most important photographers of our time, Andreas Gursky (born 1955) is known for his large-scale, often spectacular pictures that portray emblematic sites and scenes of the global economy and contemporary life. From the work of the late 1980s, produced after Gursky had graduated from Bernd Becher’s class at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, through to his most recent photographs which continue to push the boundaries of the medium, Gursky’s art has been driven by an interest in forms of collective existence. This includes depictions of massive man-made structures and huge gatherings of people in nightclubs, factories, arenas and vast landscapes, which together provide a sweeping visual record of our age. Steidl has published Gursky’s Andreas Gursky (2015) and Bangkok (2012).

About the Author:
PETER GALASSI is chief curator of the Department of Photography at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Among his recent books and exhibitions are Walker Evans and Company and American Photography: 1890-1965.
From Library Journal:
Gursky's retrospective at New York's Museum of Modern Art this spring (now showing in Chicago) was just the latest achievement by this German photographer, ranked among the half-dozen most important art photographers now working. Galassi, MOMA's chief photography curator, does an excellent job of tracing the artist's influences and development in his engaging essay. Moreover, the illustrations of work by his mentors, especially Bernd and Hilla Becher, as well as of his own early work, commercial work, and school projects, are highly informative. The 59 large-format plates (48 of them from the 1990s) forming the catalog that follows concentrate on his mature themes: massive and empty modern buildings, crowded public spaces filled with frenetic, impersonal activity, and landscapes that most often look at a built topology. The combination of his unique, painterly use of the camera and his ability to capture the beehive of contemporary society (whether the images are occupied or not) rightfully have earned him his current position. This best available overview is highly recommended for all libraries. Eric Bryant, "Library Journal"

Book Description hardcover. Condition: Ottimo (Fine). Prima edizione (First Edition). Pubblicato in occasione della mostra "Andreas Gursky", Hayward Gallery, Londra 25 gennaio - 22 aprile 2018. Con contributi di Katharina Fritsch, A. Gursky, Ralph Rugoff , Gerald Schroder, Brian Sholis e Jeff Wall.  Con 100 immagini a colori e in bianco e nero . 4to (26.5 x 30 cm). pp. 168. . Ottimo (Fine). . Prima edizione (First Edition). . Andreas Gursky è stato ampiamente celebrato per le sue immagini monumentali e straordinariamente dettagliate, che spesso esplorano temi globali contemporanei. Questa monografia dà uno sguardo nuovo alle immagini iconiche dell'artista degli ultimi quattro decenni.In una conversazione fondamentale tra due delle figure più significative della fotografia contemporanea, Gursky discute con Jeff Wall delle fonti della sua visione fotografica, mentre un saggio del direttore della Hayward Gallery Ralph Rugoff esplora aree importanti ma spesso trascurate del lavoro dell'artista. I saggi dello storico dell'arte Gerald Schröder e dello scrittore-curatore Brian Sholis forniscono nuove informazioni sulle immagini chiave e l'artista Katharina Fritsch offre istantanee personali del suo collega di Düsseldorf, creando un ritratto dell'artista a tutto tondo. Presentando le opere più note dell'artista ? tra cui Paris, Montparnasse (1993), 99 Cent (2001) e Chicago Board of Trade III (2009) ? oltre a nuove fotografie inedite, questa è una rassegna indispensabile di quarant'anni di lavoro di uno degli artisti più influenti del mondo.
