Wolfgang Tillmans, What's wrong with redistribution, Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, 2016

Wolfgang Tillmans’ Truth Study Centre has been a fixed component of his exhibitions since he first showed a version of the multipart tabletop installation in 2005. The scope and complexity of this project become apparent for the first time through this book, the second—following Manual (2007)—dedicated to this set of works. Over the span of 320 pages (printed using a high-resolution technique), Tillmans presents an alternative chronology of the present. Far exceeding his original and main medium of photography, he juxtaposes a variety of contrary opinions, statements and comparisons on recurring table formats. The dimensions of the wooden tables, which he designed himself, are not arbitrary: they are built using standard British door panels, 78 inches long, and with one of four different standard widths. This book gives an overview, through lavish reproductions, of this new form of collage, in which picture, text and object "are only kept in place by their own weight," as the photographer puts it.

Wolfgang Tillmans, FESPA Digital / Fruit Logistica, Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, 2012

In February 2011, German photographer Wolfgang Tillmans decided to visit Fruit Logistica, the most important convention in the international fruit trade, held annually in Berlin. More than 2,400 fresh produce companies gather at the convention, presenting a dazzling panorama of texture and color. "I was left open-mouthed by the crazy displays and the variety and complexity of the international fruit trade and its processing machinery," he records. "I reacted with my camera straight away." The resultant 66 color photographs are published here for the first time.

Wolfgang Tillmans, The Cars, Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, 2015

This book looks at a cross section of what cars ʻactuallyʼ look like in a global sampling and how they interact with the environment around them.

"I wanted to show how cars appear in typical street view, which is rarely the subject of photographs. Cars are usually avoided in photography - one waits until a car has exited a view. The ordinary presence of cars is rarely worthy of representation. It's always the special car, or the extreme traffic jam or, of course, the exciting crash that is being pictured. The Cars pays tribute to the shapes and forms we look at every day. How much time we spend with them, sitting inside them, the endless hours we stare at a dashboard. Even if we don't own a car ourselves, their presence is unavoidable. Cars are everywhere. Their sheer number is the most crazy thing about them. They appear in our lives with excessive omnipresence. In their volume cars intrude upon public space, and the way they occupy streets and open areas is rarely challenged. Virtually wherever there are people, there are cars and they are visually intermingling in whatever we see. We are looking at the world from a car and cars are in the foreground, the background or in between of what is in our view. Where they are, they add a tone, a note, a presence, a noise to the setting they're in. [...]" - Wolfgang Tillmans
