Wolfgang Tillmans Truth Study Center

The underbelly of the world and the pursuit of impossible truth.

In his third Taschen book, celebrated artist photographer and winner of the 2000 Turner Prize Wolfgang Tillmans takes his exploration of the visible world to a new level. The title "Truth Study Center" is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the paradox of our desire to find a universal truth and the impossibility of doing so.

From evocative nude studies and candid personal portraits of Tony Blair to astronomical views of planet Venus passing over the disc of the sun, for the first time the full width of Tillman's world is brought together in one book. Also included is an extensive selection of striking new abstract works, which through their vivid colors and compositions evoke bodily as well as atmospheric sensations.

From nightlife to still life, Tillmans shows us another side of the world we live in today. This is edited and designed by Tillmans himself.
