09 September 2021 until 13 February 2022
MKM Museum Küppersmühle for Modern Art, Duisburg
Andreas Gursky (*1955) is one of the most renowned contemporary photographers worldwide. His works have a special object language that critically addresses diverse social issues and current topics. His distanced and subjective view of everyday cultural phenomena, consumerism, globalisation, environment, climate, economy and politics makes him a unique observer of our time. Numerous details and structures of complex systems are revealed in his works and invite us to approach the “bigger picture” in the play of proximity and distance.
MKM director Walter Smerling curated the exhibition in close collaboration with Andreas Gursky. The artist has designed the retrospective explicitly for the location, with close references to the region.
