Texts by Melanie Bono and Thomas Palzer
Thomas Ruff: Stellar Landscapes was published on the occasion of the artist’s 2011 solo exhibition at the LWL-Landesmuseum für Kunst und Kulturgeschichte in Münster, Germany. The exhibition focused specifically on four of Ruff’s series: the Sterne series, produced between 1989 and 1992, zycles from 2007, cassini series from 2008/2009, and recent work from the ma.r.s. series, shown for the first time in an institutional context. This fully illustrated bilingual publication (English and German) includes texts by Melanie Bono, LWL’s Associate Director and Curator of Contemporary Art, and writer Thomas Palzer. It received a German Photo Book Award in 2012, which is awarded by the Publishers & Booksellers Association of Baden-Württemberg, Germany.
