About

The talk accompanies the exhibition Dieter Blum. XTC: Dance and Eros. Selected Photographs, 1994–98 which is being hosted at the Wolverhampton School of Art from 8 June - 25 August. The exhibition has been organized by Daimler AG’s Art Department and Wolverhampton School of Art’s Photography Department presenting the work of Dieter Blum for the first time in the UK.

Working in the fields of both applied and fine art photography, Dieter Blum is counted amongst Germany’s most highly regarded photographers. He was awardedthe Médaille Vermeil of the Paris-based Société Arts-Sciences-Lettres in 2015 in recognition of his career which has spanned more than 50 years.

From his beginnings in commercial photography, he was the only non-American to participate in the iconic Marlboro advertising campaign. The common trait in all of Dieter Blum’s work is the intensity of the moment, captured and transformed into images which often acquire monumental and almost sculptural qualities.

In conversation with Dr Renate Wiehager, Curator and Head of the Daimler Art Collection, Stuttgart/Berlin, this event will give insights into Dieter Blum’s working practice and creative personality.
