More about the artwork

This installation by Wolfgang Tillmans is a detailed reconstruction of his first solo exhibition in 1993, in the gallery Buchholz & Buchholz. Here, Tillmans first tested a mode of presentation in which photographs, photocopies, and reproductions of magazine pages are displayed non-hierarchically and spread across the entirety of the exhibition space. In the best sense, this installation acts as a portrait of its time. Created in the years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the photographs show friends of the artist, techno DJs and musicians, and ravers in sweat-drenched T-shirts, their pupils dilated from ecstasy. It was the era of the first Love Parades and the first major Gay Pride events in both Germany and England. In their affectionate gazes, the pictures convey the collective desire to break away from fossilized social structures and political dogmas while partying.
