Artist talk with Thomas Struth

Artist Talk 14.12.17

For more than 30 years, Thomas Struth has pursued the concept of exploring the medium of photography with a high degree of reflection. In conversation with Ulrich Wilmes, chief curator at Haus der Kunst, the artist talks about his methodological strategies concerning his choice of subjects and individual image making processes; the tension between objective conception and aesthetic perception; and the confrontation with the increasingly precarious relationship between the natural environment and mechanized living spaces. Aspects of Struth’s pronounced social interests and his engagement with current developments in research under the dictates of globalization will also be discussed.
