Texts by Okwui Enwezor, Thomas Weski, and Valeria Liebermann

Thomas Ruff: Works 1979-2011 was published on the occasion of the artist’s major survey in 2012 at the Haus der Kunst in Munich. Marking the first comprehensive presentation of his works in more than ten years, the exhibition presented a selection of photographs from all of the artist’s series to date, beginning with his small Interiors and large Portraits to his latest series based on astronomical photographs from ESO and NASA. This bilingual publication (English and German) features over 200 color plates as well as in-depth descriptions of each of Ruff’s series by art historian Valeria Liebermann and essays by Okwui Enwezor, Director of Haus der Kunst, and Thomas Weski, Professor at Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst, Leipzig.
