Andreas Gursky, born in 1955 to a family of photographers in Germany, studied photography at the Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf. His masters Bernd and Hilla Becher’s detached and objective point of view on post-industrial society deeply influenced his works, focusing since the 1980s on confronting a contemporary spectacle-centred society and its consequent new series of challenges.

The Collection: A Sports Meeting

In resonance with the passage of the Olympic flame, the Fondation presents in the famous building of Frank Gehry, «The Collection: A Sports Meeting».  
A selection of works from our Collection is on display at the second level of the building. In their polyphony, they offer a poetic and offbeat look around the theme of sport. From Galerie 9 to Galerie 11, the works of five French and international artists are brought together.
