Wolfgang Tillmans returns to the Tate Modern

One of the greatest, internationally renowned German photographers is back at the Tate Modern, after having exhibited there for the first time in 2003.

Located on the right bank of the Thames in a former power station rehabilitated by Herzog & de Meuron (also responsible for the recent ‘Switch House' addition), the Tate Modern houses a collection of contemporary and modern art, both national and international. It is also renowned for its temporary exhibitions that often achieve ‘event' status. Such is the case with Wolfgang Tillmans, the great German photographer and winner of the Turner Prize, who is returning to these walls 14 years after his first exhibition. Through his photographs, which are unretouched on principle so as to better capture the process of the shot, Wolfgang Tillmans recounts our world and our contemporary existence. His exhibition at the Tate Modern carries his work beyond photography, comparing the prints that are presented with slide shows and written and musical projects.
