Wolfgang Tillmans

Fine Arts

Wolfgang Tillmans (*1968 in Remscheid/DE) lives and works in Berlin, Germany and London, UK. He was became a professor at Städelschule in 2003 and was a full member of the faculty until 2009. Few artists have shaped the scope of contemporary art and influenced a younger generation more than Wolfgang Tillmans. Since the early 1990s, his works have epitomized a new kind of subjectivity in photography, pairing intimacy and playfulness with social critique and the persistent questioning of existing values and hierarchies.

Tillmans studied at Bournemouth and Poole College of Art and Design in Bournemouth, England from 1990 to 1992. In 2000, Tillmans was the first photographer and first non-British artist to receive the Turner Prize. He was appointed a member of the Royal Academy of Arts, London in 2013.

Since the early 1990s, Tillmans's work has been the subject of prominent solo exhibitions at international institutions, recently with a major survey that toured through South America. Recently on view at the Tate Modern in London was a major survey exhibition of Tillmans’s work. The artist has operated the non-profit exhibition space Between Bridges since 2006.
