WOLFGANG TILLMANS FOR JAHRESRING

For its 64th iteration, Jahresring enlisted Wolfgang Tillmans to guest edit an issue, which the photographer has titled “What is Different?”:

“We have known for some time that there are people who feel drawn to esoteric conspiracy theories. What is new, however, is that hard facts are no longer believed by wide segments of the population. During the past two years, I have come to realise that if 30% of the electorate are resistant to rational argument, we are on a slippery slope.

“In light of all this, I wanted to investigate [by interviewing scientists, politicians, journalists, and social workers] why the backfire effect is having more impact today than it did ten, twenty, or forty years ago. What has changed? What is different? This latter phrase became the title of the book.” — Wolfgang Tillmans, in The Guardian*

 

WHAT IS DIFFERENT?, JAHRESRING 64, edited by Wolfgang Tillmans and Brigitte Oetker. Published by Sternberg Press.

WOLFGANG TILLMANS

“What does this constant self-expression mean? Is that maybe a terror of self-expression?” — Wolfgang Tillmans*

“A thoughtful, intelligent confidence has guided his long, successful journey, but Wolfgang has claimed that he would be lost without the strong sense of doubt that defines his photography, from the representational documents of his community to his abstractions. He is highly engaged in the international discourse around politics and power. Yet, as he told writer Paul Flynn in 2009, ‘purposelessness is quite crucial to art.’ These contradictions are the connections that define Wolfgang’s body of work.”**

In its first large-scale show devoted to photography, the Fondation Beyeler will exhibit over 200 works from 1989 through 2017 by Tillmans, together with a new audiovisual installation.

 

WOLFGANG TILLMANS, May 28 through October 1.
