Big news for art fans in Germany: A new exhibit of Andreas Gursky's work is set to open in Düsseldorf later this year.
Gursky's newest works as well as a selection of photographs from previous years will be on display at the Museum Kunstpalast from September 23 to January 13, 2013.
The show will feature never-before shown photographs by Gursky, whose digitally processed photographs are known for their extreme largeness and depth, as well as the ambivalence of their perspective. A theme of his latest work series (Ocean, 2010; Bangkok, 2011) is “water,” a charged topic due to recent events in Japan and Australia.
