“Sound is Liquid,” an exhibition by Wolfgang Tillmans at Mumok, Vienna

Since the early 1990s, Wolfgang Tillmans has been exploring how we view our world and the social conditions in which we live. Guided by the self-critical question “What do I really see? What do I see, and what do I want to see? What is in the picture?” he devotes his work to people and bodies, to landscapes, architectures, objects, and celestial phenomena.

This exhibition curated by Matthias Michalka features Tillman’s early photographs along with abstract images, high-resolution photographs of the globalized and digitalized reality of the early twenty-first century, and photos taken shortly before and during the pandemic. His two-channel video installation “Book for Architects” is also on view, as well as a number of recent music recordings and videos.

On view now until 24 April 2022 at Mumok
Museumsplatz 1, 1070 Vienna, Austria
