For the next edition of the Prix Pictet series of discussions at the Whitechapel Gallery, artist Thomas Ruff is joined by the Whitechapel Gallery Director Iwona Blazwick.
Fascinated by the technology of images and exploring themes from the cosmic to the catastrophic, Ruff challenges us to question how the photograph operates within society, from newspaper archives to pornography. At the same time, he delves deeply into the practice of image making, experimenting through both analogue and digital processes.
This event coincides with Thomas Ruff: Photographs 1979 — 2017, the German photographers first major London retrospective [27 September 2017—21 January 2018].
