Artist Talks

Artist Talks is a program organized by the Fondation Beyeler and UBS in which internationally renowned contemporary artists speak about their work. The talks have an open, dynamic format and range from traditional artist’s talks to moderated conversations between artists and prominent figures from the art world. The Artist Talks are held at the Fondation Beyeler in Riehen/Basel and at other art institutions in Europe, Asia and the USA.

Wolfgang Tillmans

Thursday, September 7, 6.30 p.m.

The artist will be speaking about his works in conjunction with his exhibition at the Fondation Beyeler. Tillmans first made a name for himself in the early 1990s with today in part iconic photographs that captured the mood of an entire generation and youth culture. He soon expanded his focus, experimenting with the means of photography in order to invent new pictorial types. He has thereby not only renewed the traditional genres of portraiture, still life and landscape, but also broadened the possibilities of abstraction. Event included in museum admission. Places are limited.
