Wolfgang Tillmans is a German photographer and visual artist born in 1968 in Remscheid, Germany. From 1990 to 1992 Wolfgang Tillmans studied at Bournemouth & Poole College of Art and Design in the UK. He lives and works between London and Berlin. Like Nan Goldin or Larry Clark, Wolfgang Tillmans' universe often shocks good taste and common sense. His works seem to be populated by young party-goers, drug addicts, kissing full-mouthed, urinating on a chair, or looking at the device with a mocking eye. There are also people who masturbate, couples who wash themselves or even snapshots of the artist's friends, sometimes naked and in the middle of the forest. In Germany, the United Kingdom or the Netherlands, the photographer collaborates with independent magazines mixing art, graphics and fashion: The Face, iD, Butt… His work is the fruit of all disillusion and radicalism. 1990s. In 2000, Tillmans made a series of photographs for the British newspaper The Big Issue sold by homeless people. He also poses his friends Kate Moss or Michael Stipe, leader of REM and accepts orders from the most conservative fashion magazines. In 2002, he signed an exhibition at the Palais de Tokyo. In 2008, the Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin devoted its first major retrospective to him in Germany. He is the first artist to win the Turner Prize, an annual award given to a contemporary artist under the age of 50.
