WOLFGANG TILLMANS, ALBERTINUM INSTALLATION (1992-2018), 2018

Wolfgang Tillmans is one of the most internationally significant artists of his generation. His main medium is photography. He became famous in the 1990s for his photographs featuring European youth culture. Tillmans regards himself as a “Bildermacher” (“picture maker”) who devotes as much attention to his own windowsill as to the world behind it: “Seeing is in itself contemplation about the world.” Of the 23 works on display at the Albertinum, 14 belong to the Hoffmann Collection, which was donated to the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden in March 2018. The other nine works were purchased for the Museum by MUSEIS SAXONICIS USUI – Freunde der Staatlichen Kunstsammlungen Dresden e.V. on the occasion of Tillmans’s installation in the Albertinum.
