|Wolfgang Tillmans' Catalogue Raisonne "If one thing matters, everything matters" (Tate Publishing, 2003). Love it!|
The Hasselblad Foundation has announced that German photographer Wolfgang Tillmans is the recipient of the 2015 Hasselblad Foundation International Award in Photography!
The Foundation’s citation:
Wolfgang Tillmans has established himself among the most original and innovative artists of his generation, constantly pushing the photographic medium in new directions. His practice has covered subjects of pressing political and social importance since the 1990s, reflecting both directly and indirectly on the power of the photographic image to engage critically with the world around us. Furthermore, Tillmans has transformed the understanding of photographic exhibition making through his daring and original installations, playing with scale, formats, framing and presentation to produce immersive experiences that have inspired subsequent generations of artists.
The award ceremony takes place in Gothenburg on November 30, 2015. On December 1, 2015 an exhibition of Tillmans’ work will open at the Hasselblad Center, Sweden. On the same day, the Hasselblad Foundation will host a symposium with the award winner, and a new book by Tillmans will be released.
