Andreas Gursky / Kunstmuseum Basel

October 23, 2007

The exhibition “Andreas Gursky” at the Kunstmuseum Basel presents 25 works by the artist, most of them created in 2007. They include new motifs within the familiar thematic spectrum of recent years, such as Kuwait Stock Exchange and the interior of a Frankfurt nightclub, as well as photographs from the latest series Pyongyang and F1 Pit Stop. Andreas Gursky was born in Leipzig in 1955 and now lives in Dsseldorf. Andreas Gursky is widely regarded as one of the world’s foremost contemporary photographers. “Among the hallmarks of his work are his use of color, his supersize formats and his excessive deployment of digital image processing.” (excerpt from the press release). The exhibition is accompanied by a catalog with texts by Bernhard Mendes Brgi, Beate Sntgen and Nina Zimmer. During the exhibition there will be a wide-ranging program of related events.
