"With his monumental photographs, Andreas GURSKY is regarded as a diagnostician of globalization like hardly any other contemporary artist. His instrument: a new pictorial language whose expressive richness is always seen in connection with abstraction and digital image processing.
With this book, 'Die Konstitution der Dinge: Phänomene der Abstraktion bei Andreas Gursky' (The Constitution of Things: Phenomena of Abstraction in Andreas Gursky), Eva Witzel presents the first comprehensive investigation of the phenomena of abstraction in Andreas GURSKY's work from 1984 to 2001 and identifies the phases and strategies of image making in a synoptic analysis. In doing so, it establishes the term 'abstract' for thematic interpretation: as an essential condensation of the motif that points beyond the singular object to something universal."
