This exhibition comprises five series of photos by the German photographer Thomas Ruff (1958, Zell am Harmersbach) ranging from the start of his artistic career in the late 1970s to recent work in 2014. As one of the protagonists of the Dusseldorf School of Photography he became most widely known for his portraits, several of which are in the S.M.A.K. collection. The selection of photos being shown under the title ‘Lichten’ takes as its philosophical and scientific thread the spectrum between natural and virtual light – a fundamental shift that has taken place in the medium of photography over the last thirty years.
David Lamelas, unanimemente considerato dalla critica uno dei pionieri del Concettuale.
Condividendo le sollecitazioni radicali della generazione postminimalista – la messa in crisi e il successivo abbandono del modello tradizionale di scultura, innanzitutto, dei suoi materiali, delle sue procedure e del suo rapporto con l’osservatore – la pratica artistica di Lamelas, molteplice per forme e attitudini, si distingue sin dalla metà degli anni sessanta per l‘indagine condotta sulle nozioni di spazio e di tempo, nonché per la costanza e l’ironia con cui ha mostrato gli inganni della comunicazione e dei processi di trasmissione delle informazioni. Nel 1968, durante le fasi aurorali dell’Arte Concettuale, si trasferisce a Londra divenendo parte della nuova generazione di artisti inglesi.

In September 2014, the Royal Academy will present the first major retrospective of work to be held in the UK by Honorary Royal Academician, Anselm Kiefer.
Over the last decade, our single artist shows have captured the imagination of the public. Always large in scale, ambitious in scope and astonishing in execution, we’ve seen artists including Anish Kapoor and David Hockney take on our Main Galleries. Now, this autumn, it’s the turn of a man described as “a colossus of contemporary art” to make his mark: Anselm Kiefer.
This will be the most significant exhibition of the German artist’s work ever held in the UK, spanning his entire 40 year career and unveiling new work created in direct response to our spaces.
Kiefer’s extraordinary body of work includes painting, sculpture and quite simply monumental installations. Uncompromising in the subject matter he tackles, Kiefer’s work powerfully captures the human experience and draws on history, mythology, literature, philosophy and science.
Full of brave and provocative work, this exhibition will be a testament to the career of a man driven to confront himself and the audience with the big and complex issues of our world’s past, present and future.
