Galerie Rudolfinum presents an unique author installation of the most recent works by Juergen Teller, one of the world’s most sought-after contemporary photographers.

About

The artist came to fame already in 1991 with his portraits of the band Nirvana and their frontman Kurt Cobain. For wider public he is mostly known for his work in the fashion industry. Now it is primarily his private work, in particular the extensive photo series which he shows in books, magazines and exhibitions. He ows his unmistakeable signature style mainly to the creative freedom he has won, even when working for commercial clients. Despite the seemingly random manner his work is based on precise planning and staging that is close to film directors. Snapshot quality and imperfect beauty of the images hide a meticulous and consistent work with photographed protagonists and/or the featured places. For his until now unpublished series “Mit dem Teller nach Bonn” (With Teller to Bonn), Teller was granted exklusive access to photograph in the Chancellor’s Bungalow, the iconic residential building of the German federal government. One of the other exhibition motifs is a kind of photographic diaries, which Teller took in 2014 when Germany emerged World Cup Champions. Personal passions, intimacy, banality and uniqueness intertwine in Teller’s work since the beginning of the nineties and do not cease to surprise the visitor today.

 

The exhibition Juergen Teller: Enoy Your Life was put together as a classical coproduction of three institutions: Bundeskunsthalle Bonn, Galerie Rudolfinum in Prague and Martin Gropius Bau in Berlin. For each of the venues Juergen Teller adapted the exposition according to the individual exhibition locations. Galerie Rudolfinum will present the largest selection of photographs together with a series of videos from past years. A collective catalogue was published for all institutions and covers texts by prominent art theoreticians as well as the artist himself together with reproductions of exhibited works.
