Wolfgang Tillmans: To look without fear

Encompassing photography, installation, print media, video and more, this publication is the most comprehensive account of Tillmans’ wide-ranging career to date

A visionary creator and intrepid polymath, Wolfgang Tillmans unites formal inventiveness with an ethical orientation that attends to the most pressing issues of life today. While his work transcends the bounds of any single artistic discipline, he is best known for his wide-ranging photographic output. From trenchant documents of social movements to windowsill still lifes, ecstatic images of nightlife to cameraless abstractions, sensitive portraits to architectural studies, astronomical phenomena to intimate nudes, he has explored seemingly every genre of photography imaginable, continually experimenting with how to make new pictures and deepen the viewer’s experience.
Published in conjunction with a major exhibition of Tillmans’ work at the Museum of Modern Art, this copiously illustrated volume surveys four decades of the artist’s career. An outstanding group of writers offer diverse essays addressing key threads of his multifaceted practice, and a new text by Tillmans himself elucidates the distinctive methodology behind his system of presenting photographs. Wolfgang Tillmans: To look without fear grants readers new insight into the work of an artist who has not only changed the way photography is exhibited but pointed contemporary art in dynamic new directions.
Wolfgang Tillmans (born 1968) is among the most influential contemporary artists, and the impact of his work registers across the arts, intersecting with fashion, music, architecture, the performing arts and activism. Tillmans is the recipient of the Turner Prize (2000) and the Hasselblad Foundation International Award in Photography (2015). His foundation, Between Bridges, supports the advancement of democracy, international understanding, the arts and LGBTQ rights.


"Frank, in the shower" (2015) is reproduced from 'Wolfgang Tillmans: To look without fear'.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

New York Times: Arts

Matthew Anderson

Whereas his early pictures invited the viewer into his personal world of sexual liberation, borderless travel and joyful togetherness, in more recent works, and in his increasing engagement as a political campaigner, he has argued that those freedoms are fragile, and based on wins that, if not safeguarded, can be lost.

We’re excited to share our Spring 2022 catalog, featuring a Wolfgang Tillmans photo on the cover. The subject of a major upcoming MoMA retrospective bravely titled To look without fear, Tillmans’ work is characterized by a kind of exalted everydayness; his voracious lens uncovers a subversive beauty in everything. Right now, we’re holding onto the transformative power of beauty: the tulip as the quintessential image of spring, evocative—hopefully—of the ground thawing and cases dropping.

'Wolfgang Tillmans: To look without fear' is on view at MoMA

Published to accompany the four-decade survey opening this week at MoMA (en route to the Art Gallery of Ontario and SFMOMA through February 2024), To look without fear collects 400 color reproductions of Wolfgang Tillmans' game-changing photography, installation, print media and video works, alongside essays by an outstanding list of curators and writers. Oluremi C. Onabanjo, for example, calls Tillmans' portrait-making process encounters "laden with vulnerability on both sides." She quotes Tillmans: “My whole concept of photography confused people in the 1990s, because I did not accept the traditional borders between staged and un-staged. … I think that the moment when there is a camera present is already staging. A camera in the room is never neutral. And my role as a photographer is to be aware of that and to deal with it." continue to blog
