Wolfgang Tillmans’s artistic practice attributes central importance to the observation of people, their relationship to one another, and their connection to the things around them. These subjective relations and modes of perceiving bodies, images, materials, or surfaces are undergoing massive shifts in light of the current health crisis, calls for social distancing, and the relocation of our everyday life and interaction into virtual space.
Recent developments have exacerbated the mediatization of our everyday lives, which we have been witnessing for some time. We are experiencing a spatial restructuring and changes in the media landscape that also affect the status of photography and its relationship to materiality and visuality.
