Wolfgang Tillmans, Neue Welt, 2012. (Deluxe Edition)
This Art Edition consists of 72 photos printed on 24 folded sheets, delivered in a signed and numbered portfolio. Tillmans selected photographs from the book edition and recontextualised them on 24 large format folded sheets, each sheet becoming a large picture object with front, centerfold, and back. On some, the front and back form a whole picture when unfolded. The artist also chose some details which he enlarged to the full potential of information and detail available. Says Tillmans, "This is the first time I'm doing an oversized publication; in this case, the sheets are not bound—instead they stay light and it is almost like handling actual prints of mine.” This Art Edition includes some of the content of the corresponding book, as well as some new photographs not featured in the book.
