Item description for Art, Fashion and Work for Hire: Thomas Demand, Peter Saville, Hedi Slimane, Hans Ulrich Obrist and Cristina Bechtler in Conversation (Kunst und Architektur ... / Art and Architecture in Discussion) by Thomas Demand...

Thomas Demand is known for his large-format photographic work. As the head designer of Dior Homme, Hedi Slimane revolutionized men's fashion. He is also known for his work as an artist. Peter Saville wrote design history with his album covers for British bands such as Joy Division, New Order and Pulp, and with his work for fashion designers. Demand, Slimane, and Saville have all gone beyond the limitations of a single type of media to realize their ideas and visions.

They discuss their work and motivation in a conversation in Berlin with the curator Hans Ulrich Obrist and the editor Cristina Bechtler, and also share their views on new forms of creativity, cross-border endeavors, fashion, architecture, photography, political art and many more subjects.

More About Thomas Demand


Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Thomas Demand was born in Munich in 1964. He studied at the Akademie der Bildenden Kunste, Munich, the Kunstakademie Dusseldorf, the Cite des Arts, Paris, and Goldsmiths College, London. Demand begins by translating a preexisting image, usually culled from the media, into a life-size model he makes out of colored paper and cardboard. He recreates a room, a parking lot, a staircase, a landscape--then he photographs the model and destroys it. Demand's photographs appear at once compellingly real and strangely artificial. Since their subjects--handcrafted facsimiles of both architectural spaces and natural environments--are themselves built in the image of other images, the photographs are three times removed from the scenes they seek to depict. Combining craftsmanship and conceptualism in equal parts, Demand pushes the medium of photography toward uncharted frontiers.

Thomas Demand was born in 1964.
