Since the early 1990s, Wolfgang Tillmans has earned recognition as one of the most exciting and innovative artists working today. This exhibition brings his 'extended practice' to the fore, offering a new focus on his photographs, video, digital slide projections, publications, curatorial projects and recorded music. In March, Tillmans will also take over Tate's South Tank for ten days with a specially-commissioned installation featuring live music events.
Taking the year 2003 as the literal and conceptual point of departure, the exhibition will focus on the artist's work produced in the 14 years since his major exhibition at Tate Britain. His characteristic engagement with the social and political climate specific to this period will be revealed in a carefully configured sequence of spaces.
