From intimate still-lifes and portraits, to images that address vital political issues, explore the photographs of this groundbreaking artist

Since the early 1990s, Wolfgang Tillmans has earned recognition as one of the most exciting and innovative artists working today.

While he made his name as a photographer, he has achieved equal acclaim for his investigations of abstract photography, including works made without a camera, and prints that take on a three-dimensional, sculptural quality. Taking the year 2003 as the point of departure, this exhibition focuses on Tillman’s work in the 14 years since his major exhibition at Tate Britain and showcases all its facets, including his ‘expanded practice’: digital slide projections, publications, and curatorial projects and recorded music.

In addition, Tillmans will take over Tate Modern’s South Tank for ten days with, amongst others, an installation featuring live events.
