Product Description

Conceived and designed by Wolfgang Tillmans, and published in association with the exhibitions "Rebuilding the Future" at IMMA, Dublin and "Today Is The First Day", at WIELS, Brussels, this richly illustrated artist's book explores the latest developments in Tillmans's work over the last three years. "Today Is The First Day" spans the artist's multifaceted approach to image-making, video, performance, music and political activities, presenting newly commissioned texts from contributors including novelist Olivia Laing, historian Brian Dillon, curator Catherine Wood, and geologist David Chew, each of whom illuminate a different aspect of Tillmans's work. The scope of the book includes over 30 pages featuring his set design for the English National Opera's production of War Requiem, recent portraits, and detailed installation views that allow to see in depth Tillmans's installation practices in venues as far afield as Kinshasa and Goslar, Hong Kong and Johannesburg.

Texts by Devrim Bayar, David Chew, Brian Dillon, Sarah Glennie, Patricia Hecht, Eimear McBride, David Nash, Michaela Nash, Mark O'Kelly, Dirk Snauwaert, Benjamin Stafford, Rachel Thomas, Catherine Wood & Wolfgang Tillmans.
