Photographer Andreas Gursky

Published by: MACK

Imprint: Mack Books

Published by Fondazione MAST, this catalogue accompanies the first exhibition in Italy dedicated to the German artist Andreas Gursky. Gursky?s large-scale images frame the contemporary landscape and define our experience of the world and this exhibition has been curated by reference to the parameters of the MAST collection ? Manifattura di Arti, Sperimentazione e Tecnologia / Manufacture of Art, Experience, and Technology. The forty-one spectacular large-format photographs open up peculiar perspectives on the world of work, the economy, and globalisation, revealing striking views of production sites, goods handling centres, temples of consumption, transport hubs, energy and food production, and the financial industry. This volume, published on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of Fondazione MAST, includes all forty-one exhibited photographs alongside a critical essay by cur-ator Urs Stahel, who sheds new light on the research and practice of a leading international artist whose work pushes the boundaries of photography while deepening our understanding of our times. Text by Urs Stahel 

Andreas Gursky studied visual communication at the Folkwang Universität der Künste in Essen, Germany, from 1977 to 1980. He then continued his studies at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, where he was a master-class student of Bernd and Hilla Becher. Emerging in the 1990s, Gursky established himself as an important figure in contemporary German art, going on to be the subject of retro-spectives at the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf in 1998 and in 2001 at The Museum of Modern Art in New York. Gursky?s works are in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Tate Modern in London. He lives and works in Düsseldorf.
