Thomas Struth: Figure Ground
Exhibition, Long Museum, Munich, Germany.
Presented is a comprehensive survey of Thomas Struth’s genre-defining oeuvre. Covering four decades of work and every phase of his career, the exhibition focuses on the artist’s social interests, which represent the important forces of his influential development.
This thorough survey brings together as-yet-unseen early works and collected research material drawn from his archive that elucidate the far-reaching and long anding ideas behind the works and demon rate the process of Struth’s artistic translation leading to the perfection of the image. Clearly illustrated here is the artist’s ability to combine analysis and pictorial invention in multifaceted works and techniques that result in overarching and powerful photographic images.
