Juergen Teller is one of the world’s most sought-after contemporary photographers. His pictures have straddled the interface of art and commercial photography. His stylistic device of choice is the portrait. Working in the areas of music, fashion and celebrities as well as everyday scenes and landscape, he draws on his intuitive feel for people, situations, milieus and clichés to create images of great immediacy and deceptive simplicity.
In the exhibition, works like “Siegerflieger” and „My Man Crush”, „Pep Guardiola” transform the Foyer into a public viewing area, where images of victories and defeats bear witness to Teller’s feel for capturing decisive moments. Other groups of works are more autobiographical and occasionally anecdotal: quiet landscapes from “Nürnberg”, carefully staged yet unsparingly candid images of himself in “The Clinic” and subjective documentations of his engagement with his youth and his origins such as “Irene im Wald.” The latest series, “Mit dem Teller nach Bonn” and “Plates/Teller,” seem to bring together and concentrate all his earlier themes and compositions.
