Andreas Gursky: Two Reviews

I have written twice about the work of Andreas Gursky, some 23 years apart, and I have placed both the texts here to illustrate how the issues surrounding his work have developed and, in some respects, changed.

The first review was for the London-based art magazine Untitled and covered his first one-person exhibition in the UK at Tate Liverpool in 1995.

The second was in Source magazine in 2018 and was a response to his one-person show in London at the newly reopened Hayward Gallery.

The photograph to the right shows a large blow-up of Gursky‚Äôs photograph ‘Tokyo 2017’ mounted next to Waterloo Bridge.
