Taking a lead from the resistance and activism in Wolfgang Tillmans’ work on the Brexit referendum, Colin Graham considers the populist politics which seeks to re-shape our understandings of identity, freedom and citizenship. Tillman’s art understands the ways in which fundamental changes to the post-war order are altering our ideas of what Europe can be. Colin Graham discusses how Tillman’s campaigning art tackles this new politics head on.

About Exhibition

Wolfgang Tillmans, Rebuilding the Future  
26 October 2018 – 17 February 2019

Rebuilding the Future comprises over 100 works and captures Tillmans’ unique way of working. This new exhibition for IMMA mixes works from throughout his career and in numerous formats, installed in IMMA’s galleries in direct relation to the physical spaces and atmosphere of the museum. While primarily a lens-based artist, Tillmans also works in a variety of other media. The exhibition includes works on paper made with and without a camera, sound work, moving image works and installation. Also central to Tillmans’ practice is the prolific production of books, catalogues and magazine editorials, and more recently, live and recorded music. An immersive new sound work, I Want to Make a Film (2018), which engages with concerns over the speed and development of personal technology and its effects, is shown here at IMMA for the first time.
