    With the exhibition On the Verge of Visibility at the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art, German artist and photographer Wolfgang Tillmans focuses on border zones and liminal states, trademarks of his recent work. Tillmans has become increasingly interested in the chemical foundations of photographic material, as well as its haptic and spatial possibilities, creating works without a camera in the darkroom that present photography as a self-referential medium. In this way, Tillmans engenders an experimental ground for the creation of a new type of image structure. In this catalogue, these “abstract” works appear in juxtaposition to figurative photographs.

    • Few artists have shaped the scope of contemporary art and influenced a younger generation more than Wolfgang Tillmans. Since the early 1990s, his works have epitomized a new kind of subjectivity in photography, pairing intimacy and playfulness with social critique and the persistent questioning of existing values and hierarchies. Through his seamless integration of genres, subjects, techniques, and exhibition strategies, he has expanded conventional ways of approaching the medium and his practice continues to address the fundamental question of what it means to create pictures in an increasingly image-saturated world.
