Xl-Photography: Art Collection Neue Borse
Introduction by Jean-Christophe Ammann.
Featuring established and emerging photographers including Thomas Ruff, Peter Fischli and David Weiss, Beat Streuli, Thomas Struth, Nobuyoshi Araki, Anna and Bernhard Blume, Baltasar Burkhard, Gnter Fārg, Andreas Gursky, Candida Hāfer, Axel Htte, Martin Liebscher, Inge Rambow, and Jārg Sasse, XL-Photography presents the photography collection of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, assembled by Jean-Christophe Amman, Director of the Museum of Modern Art in Frankfurt. XL-Photography presents close to 200 large-format works by the 14 aforementioned photographers, with pieces that range from the ironic pictorial narratives of Anna and Bernhard Blume to Htte's landscape images; from Candida Hāfer's interior shots to Araki's provocative erotic stagings; from Ruff's deconstructions of subjectivity to Streuli's urban views. Much more than a simple collection catalogue, this smartly designed and lavishly illustrated book presents some of the essential positions taken in photographic art over the past ten years.
