Tillmans’ casual yet evocative depictions of everyday life and contemporary culture led to the photographer’s prominent rise during the early 1990’s.

Since then, he’s experimented with different photographic methods and incorporated a variety of media into his work, the results of which can be seen at this exhibition.

Photographic portraits and landscapes will feature, as will video and digital slide projections; Tillmans’ curatorial and musical projects will also be included in his first ever Tate Modern show.

Social and political themes have been recurrent threads within his work, installations such as “Truth Study Centre 2005” and his Brexit “Remain” campaign posters reflect this.

Wolfgang Tillmans won the Turner Prize at the turn of the millennium, he is now recognised as one of the most exciting and innovative artists of today.
