Wolfgang Tillmans: Your Body is Yours

 

Text by Yuka Uematsu

 

Wolfgang Tillmans: Your Body is Yours is published on the occasion of Tillmans's exhibition at the National Museum of Art, Osaka, his first solo exhibition at a Japanese museum in eleven years. Housed in a display space designed by the artist himself, the exhibition includes new works appearing in Japan for the first time, numerous photographic works from recent years, and a video installation titled Books for Architects, consisting of two projections, which caused a sensation when it was shown at the the Venice Biennale International Architecture Exhibition last year. While striving to remain contemporary, Tillmans's work presents us with the reality of the society we live in.
