Canadian Jeff Wall (*1946) has made a name for himself in the art world with a special invention: colored slides in large-format back-lit display cases that exude a mysterious luminosity and have an insistent physical presence as glowing visual objects. In art historical terms the large images are located between staged and straight photography.

Like no other, the artist succeeds in combining to great effect the influences of Minimal Art with the narrative potential of large-format photography.

In addition to essays by Ulrich Bischoff, Mathias Wagner et al, and an interview with Jeff Wall, the exhibition catalogue includes commentaries by various authors on each of the works reproduced.
