Zachęta Ermutigung is Wolfgang Tillams' first exhibition in Poland. This catalogue consists of two parts; the first one showing Tillmans' images, and the second, theoretical, containing essays by Isabelle Malz (curator of the exhibition), Hanna Wróblewska, Jacek Dehnel and a selection of statements from lectures, interviews and notes Wolfgang Tillmans - in Polish and German. The pictures shown are a representation of the work Tillmans has been praised for, from the experiments in an unconventional way with black and white prints and photographic enlargements of various detail experiments, to snapshot portraits of young people from his surroundings, in particular that of subculture circles.
