About

The LSESU Art Business Society is honoured to host Wolfgang Tillmans at the London School of Economics on Thursday 15th of February at 18:00, LSE Lecture Theatre, Centre Building Ground Floor. Wolfgang Tillmans (born 1968 in Remscheid, Germany) is an artist working primarily in photography whose practice encompasses three-dimensional installations, sound and video, book making, journalism and writing as well as photographs generated both with and without a camera.  Seamlessly integrating genres, techniques, and exhibition strategies, Tillmans has expanded conventional ways of approaching the medium. His work has epitomised a new kind of subjectivity in photography, pairing intimacy and playfulness with social critique.  Since the early 1990s, Tillmans’s work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at international institutions, including The Museum of Modern Art, New York (2022), Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig Wien (mumok), Vienna (2021–22), WIELS, Contemporary Art Centre, Brussels (2020), Fondation Beyeler, Basel (2017), Tate Modern, London (2017), Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (2015), National Museum of Art, Osaka (2015), Kunsthalle Zürich (2012–13), and Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago (2006–07). Fragile, a major touring solo exhibition of the artist’s work, opened in 2018 at the Musée d’Art Contemporain et Multimédias in Kinshasa, with the final stop taking place at Art Twenty One and CCA, Lagos (2022). His work is held in museum collections worldwide. In 2000, Tillmans was the first photographer and non-British artist to receive the Turner Prize. Tillmans has operated the nonprofit exhibition space Between Bridges since 2006. Located in London until 2011, the space reopened in Berlin in 2014. In 2023, he was named as one of the one hundred most influential people by TIME. Tillmans lives and works in Berlin and London.
