Nature and Politics
Thomas Struth is one of the most well-known contemporary photographers. For the first time his work can be seen at Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin. 35 photographs, partly large-format, from the years 2007 to 2015 will be exhibited. The motives are industrial production plants, operation rooms and research laboratories, but also everyday architecture or amusement parks. In his photographs of the last few years, Struth examines how ambition and human imaginative worlds can become spatial, objectified reality. Unemotionally and matter-of-factly, they show us highly complex apparatus, structures and constructions that shape our times, but are mostly inaccessible to the public eye.
