This meticulously composed presentation connects Struth’s initial ideas to his well-defined groups of works, such as Unconscious PlacesPortraitsMuseum PhotographsNew Pictures From Paradise and Places of Worship. Thus establishing a dialogue with other works such as Berlin-Project, a video work conceived in 1998 together with media artist Klaus vom Bruch, or with the most recent photo series Nature & Politics as well as with the landscape and flower photographs created for the wards of Winterthur Hospital, later compiled in the monograph Dandelion Room (Löwenzahnzimmer). These relations between works highlight Struth’s ability to combine analysis with photographic creation in the multiple subjects and techniques that he applies to produce astonishing and powerful photographic images.

Exhibition organized by Haus der Kunst, Munich in collaboration with the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao.
