Thomas Ruff: l.m.v.d.r.

When Ruff was asked by then-curator Julian Heynen of the Kunstmuseen Krefeld in Germany to prepare an exhibition of architectural photographs of residential homes built by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe between 1927 and 1930, he responded by adding his own unique approach to the subject matter: using blur and other digital imaging techniques. Upon seeing these photographs, curator Terence Riley asked Ruff to photograph all of Mies’s buildings before 1938 for his retrospective exhibition of the architect’s work at The Museum of Modern Art in New York in 2001.
