Thomas Ruff, Photograms 2012. SOLD OUT
In each of his series, Ruff subjects the photographic medium to systematic analysis: social, political and aesthetic aspects of image production are laid bare, and thereby the history of Modernity as it was initiated by the emergence of photography in the 19th century. As a conceptual photographer, Ruff is not so much interested in photographing reality; he focuses more on portraying the realities of photography.
Parts of his series ‘Photograms’ a simulation of this historical genre – were created in cooperation with the Forschungszentrum Jülich in North Rhine-Westphalia. Ruff pushed the capacities of the supercomputers at this scientific research institute to the extreme, so these works might also be interpreted as indirect portraits of the machines.
