Thomas Ruff is one of the most internationally well-known contemporary German photographers. Over the course of two-dozen photography series, he has explored and defined the medium’s limits like no other contemporary artist. The exhibition in the LWL-Landesmuseum für Kunst und Kulturgeschichte focuses specifically on four of Thomas Ruff’s series: the stars series, produced between 1989 and 1992, zycles from 2007, the cassini series from 2008/2009, and recent work from the ma.r.s. series, shown now for the first time in an institutional context. Individual works from other series that explore a similar theme are also shown.
