Did you know? On August 13th the #wolfgangtillmansassignment began—the photo competition that challenges instagrammers to post photographs as a tribute to Wolfgang Tillmans. Participation is worthwhile because the most compelling photos will be awarded with our exhibition catalogue and a goodie bag.

The Fondation Beyeler teamed up with the successful Instagram account @thisaintartschool on the occasion of their great, Wolfgang Tillmans summer exhibition, to seek out the three best pictures posted by September 3rd.


The pictures on view at the Fondation Beyeler exhibition #tillmansbasel convey how Tillmans uses the possibilities of photography to evoke visibility, and to develop a pictorial strategy that invests the perception of the world with a new, human quality. “Seeing per se means thinking about the world, and this actually takes place on different levels at the same time,” says Tillmans. 


Here is your assignment:
Do something that Wolfgang Tillmans actually does constantly: take photos that perceive the world with fearless, open eyes and take the playful aspect seriously. Test, look, behold, probe with your eyes, comprehend things and depict what you have identified. Incorporate your feelings about the world. 
Please post your photos by September 3rd using the hashtag #wolfgangtillmansassignment. The three best photos will be chosen by curator Theodora Vischer and @thisaintartschool. The museum’s exhibition catalogue and a goodie bag are waiting for the three winners as a reward.
