Item description for Thomas Struth: Making Time by Thomas Struth & Estrella de Diego...
Thomas Struth's most recent project, "Making Time," was exhibited at the Prado, Madrid, in the winter and spring of 2007, and is now compiled in this handsome catalogue from Turner. Making Time continues Struth's established work on the subject of public art venues, and consists of photographs depicting the Prado's famous collection and its visitors, photographs that were displayed throughout the Prado during his exhibit, as part of the museum's current ambition to open up fresh perspectives on its holdings. Over the course of two years, Struth made more than 400 images in and around the Prado, showing an "inhabited" public space, and highlighting the interactions between the exhibited paintings and their viewers. This volume also marks the first presentation of Struth's earlier work, from the spring of 2005, on Velazquez's great "Las Meninas" (1656), itself a classic study of spectatorship. The result is a multilayered dialogue between Struth, the Prado, its collection and its visitors.
