With more than 130 works, this exhibition will present a comprehensive journey through forty years of creation by famous German photographer Thomas Struth (b. 1954).

In a meticulously composed presentation, the exhibition will establish a dialogue between groups of works in order to connect Struth's initial ideas to his well-defined past and recent series: Unconscious Places, Portraits, Museum Photographs, New Pictures From Paradise, Places of Worship, the 1998 video installation Berlin-Project, Nature & Politics and Dandelion Room (Löwenzahnzimmer), a monograph of landscape and flowers for the patients of the Winterthur Hospital.

Never before exhibited early works and research materials from the photographer's archive will help to understand these different stages in Struth's work and the social concerns at the core of them.

Conceived by the Haus der Kunst (Munich) where it was first presented, in collaboration with the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao.
