At just over 430 pages, this monumental and beautifully designed new monograph presents the most comprehensive view of the London-based photographer Wolfgang Tillmans' work to date, featuring many photographic works and abstract "paintings" from the past five years that have never been published before.
When he is working on an exhibition or a publication, Tillmans displays and combines pictures on long tables in his studio so that the images are "held in position only by their own weight. The method of laying out two-dimensional objects on a table produces 'clarity' and allows perspective. A new text emerges through the combination of intrinsically different pieces of paper. The issues dealt with on these tables do not claim to be fully comprehensive and the items chosen do not profess to be definitive examples of their kind. Rather, this multivocal process allows me to amplify voices I feel need strengthening, contrasting them with their opposites and their neighbors." This method has become a concept. In Manual the artist combines his own photographs, painterly works and texts together with already existing newspaper articles to create an associative, comprehensive view. The material is condensed into a complex artistic dialogue with various social and political themes, like AIDS or the question of absolute truth, which the artist has been exploring for years.

Wolfgang Tillmans was born in Remscheid, Germany in 1968 and studied at Bournemouth & Poole College of Art and Design. He is widely regarded as one of the most influential artists of his generation. His work, whilst appearing to capture the immediacy of the moment and character of the subject, also examines the dynamics of photographic representation. From the outset he ignored the traditional separation of art exhibited in a gallery from images and ideas conveyed through other forms of publication, giving equal weight to both. His expansive floor to ceiling installations feature images of subcultures and political movements, as well as portraits, landscapes, still-lives and abstract imagery varying in scale from postcard- to wall-sized prints. His work has been shown at the Museum of Modern Art, New York in 1996 and Tate Britain, London, in a major retrospective in 2003. He was awarded the Turner Prize in 2000.From Library Journal:
These two new works are united by the fact that each of the twentysomething artists earned a place in this fall's round-up of best new photographers at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. In a book devoid of text (even the copyright information is on the back cover), Billingham presents an extended album of his family's life in the projects near Birmingham, England. The brutally frank snapshots center on Ray, Richard's alcholic father, Liz, his chainsmoking mother, and his brother Jason. Mostly disturbing yet sometimes beautiful, the haunting images seem to carry the burden of documentation, declaring their existence to be a necessary proof. Tillmans, a German photographer who has lived and worked in Hamburg, London, and New York intermingles without distinction his art images and his fashion and portrait work for magazines. This catalog for a one person show at the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg collects a diverse selection of his images. Sequenced by Tillmans, the catalog places a special emphasis on the landscapes and still lifes that have often been overlooked by critics who have labeled Tillmans the documentarian of an urban Generation X. The three short essays offer some of the most cogent writing on the photographer to date. Both books belong in larger libraries collecting contemporary artists' works.?Eric Bryant, "Library Journal"

Descripción Walther König Feb 2007, 2007. Buch. Estado de conservación: Neu. Neuware - In seinem neuesten Künstlerbuch ordnet Tillmans eigene Fotografien, malerische Arbeiten und Texte sowie vorgefundene Zeitungsartikel zu einer assoziativen Gesamtschau an. Diese Arbeitsweise wird hier zum Konzept, das Buch zur Installation: das Material verdichtet sich zu einer komplexen künstlerischen Auseinandersetzung mit unterschiedlichen sozialen und politischen Themen, welche der Künstler schon seit Jahren verfolgt. Tillmans schafft damit eine überzeugende Ergänzung zu seinen rein fotografischen Arbeiten. Mit Manual assoziiert er ein 'Handbuch' für die Erforschung der sichtbaren Welt. Es versteht sich aber auch als umfangreiche 'Anleitung' zu Tillmans' Oeuvre, als Kompendium, in dem der Künstler seine persönliche Sicht auf die eigene Arbeit vorstellt. In his new book, celebrated artist Wolfgang Tillmans, samples and mixes images on the pages and achieves a new level exploring the visible world. 'Manual' presents his entire new work and compiled archival material of the last five years of his artistic development. His remarkable installation shows tables on which his photographs are interspersed with newspaper articles, opinion columns and texts he has written to present his stances on political and social issues. Tillmans sees his book as a new, most comprehensive installation. This book is his densest and most intensive presentation of Wolfgang Tillmans' oeuvre ever published. 432 pp. Englisch, Deutsch.
