Thomas Florschuetz est né en Allemagne en 1957.
Photographer Thomas Florschuetz is best known for his large-scale montages of images of his body, which he called “Early Bodyfigures” (1980-1990). In these works, Florschuetz explored his interest in vanity and subjectivity, documenting a sort of performance in which he revealed various parts of himself—hands, feet, and face—to the camera. His work since has focused on capturing a fragmented experience of architectural and natural forms and spaces, playing on the difficulty of perceptual distinction between interior and exterior. And in recent series, he has photographed flowers and airplanes, presenting close-up shots from various angles in combination in an effort to produce a total visual experience of his subjects.

Friday, 3 June 2016 2pm
Highlight of this sale is a group of vintage prints by Albert Renger-Patzsch, which includes his famous image "Natterkopf" from 1925. The exceptional work was published in 1928 in his photo book "Die Welt ist schön" (lot 20, €15,000–20,000). The piece was made together with two other animal portraits at Dresden Zoo (lots 18/19, each est. €5,000-6,000) and due to its fascinatingly abstract graphic qualities it has become one of Renger-Patzsch’s most famous works.

Raw, intoxicating Berlin... now in Denmark
Berlin is a must for anyone involved in contemporary art. Artists from all over the world flock there, drawn by the city's diversity, pace, comparatively low rents and international scene. The « TREFFPUNKT : BERLIN » exhibition presents a selection of Danish and international contemporary art by artists who all have a strong attachment to Berlin.
ARKEN director Christian Gether says, « At ARKEN you can explore the city’s narratives. The exhibition embodies Berlin’s magnetic effect on artists, painting a fragmented picture of the raw, intoxicating city and its importance as a concrete and conceptual source of inspiration. »
The exhibition lets you experience world-class work, including the world premiere of works by suc... Exposition L'architecture fragmentée de Thomas Florschuetz au Goethe Institut

The non-profit organisation Kulturverein Bild und Kunst eV Trier is proud to announce that the first edition of the fototagetrier, the Trier Photo Days, will be held in 2010. The festival, which was conceived as a triennial event, will invest various museums and exhibition spaces in the city of Trier. Entitled “LEBEN elementar”, the first edition intends to survey a wide range of contemporary artistic practices based on photography or video and dealing with notions of contemporaneousness and existentiality.
The concept of the exhibition follows the observation that the gaps in our seemingly banal everyday – a seamless succession of events from birth and growing up to ageing and dying, interspersed with experiences of love and loss, joy and sadness, happiness and dismay, poverty ... Exposition THOMAS FLORSCHUETZ JETS GALERIE VOLKER DIEHL is pleased to announce the exhibition JETS by Berlin based artist Thomas Florschuetz. The artist's large-scale photographs focus on several different styles of aerodynamic objects from his typical minimalist perspective.
The work of Thomas Florschuetz, who moved to Berlin in 1981, has greatly varied through his career. In the first half of the 80s he began creating head studies and portraits of friends and artist colleagues, which later developed into the portrayal of his own body in the following years.
As a sort of art performance casted for the camera, his work depicted hands, feet and extracts of his own face. While the works were initially shot in black and white, color later became increasingly important as an element of expression starting in 1988. From the very beginning multiplicity is... Exposition Transition Stage Portraits and Sequences 1980-1990 "Übergangsgesellschaft" (Transition Stage) is an exhibition of photographs produced in the 1980s in the GDR. The works, which avoid pathos, are at once poetical and punctilious in the way they depict the mood of those momentous years.
In selecting pictures for the exhibition the Academy was not primarily concerned with the fall of the Wall, the demonstrations that preceded it or a chronicle of the popular movement. The exhibition focuses on the far-reaching changes, atmospheric and political, that were exploding the canonical rules governing image and were informing a new subjectivity in the work of artists. One theory posited by the exhibition is that it was precisely these changes that laid the ground for citizens' protest against the norms and aesthetics of a system. So it is that the exhibition at P... Exposition Thomas Florschuetz- Palastbilder In its new space, Galerie Volker Diehl is presenting its first exhibition of works by photographer Thomas Florschuetz. In his Palastbilder (Palace Images), Thomas Florschuetz offers a series of photographs of Berlin's landmark Palast der Republik (Palace of The Republic) shortly before its ultimate and protracted demolition. Yet rather than seeking to create a photo-documentation capturing the state of a building in a fleeting moment, Thomas Florschuetz evokes its character independently of the individual motif. By conceptualising the architectonic elements, he creates a work of art that first comes into being through his images of the building.
The Palastbilder also explore the link between interiors and an exterior world. In this process, Thomas Florschuetz dissolves our everyday understanding of an architectural bo...
