Depicting the artist’s studio after a party, a large print standing in the middle of the floor, "End of Winter" (2005) belongs to a group of photographs Tillmans took in this setting. For Tillmans, the studio is a place of production and an exhibition space, where art and life collide.

Wolfgang Tillmans

Wolfgang Tillmans emerged at the beginning of the 1990s as a photographer of a libertarian post-punk youth who listened to techno music.

At raves and gay gatherings, he captured – in large ink-jet prints, often unframed – the vulnerability of bodies, friends in informal poses, and individuals observed over a number of years in their personal lives. Using photography as social art, relating directly to reality, Tillmans builds empathy with his subjects. His art gets to the essential truth by paying close attention to the era. In doing so he revisits traditional genres: portraiture, still life and landscape. Tillmans has never stopped investigating photographic techniques. He enlarges and reframes his images using a copy machine, and creates abstract photographs in a dark room without a camera, simply using a light source. Since 1992 Tillmans has designed his exhibitions himself. Forming groups of photographs, hung on and stuck to the wall, or displayed on tables in no predefined order, he uses space as a laboratory in which collections of images reflect human communities.
