The Goethe-Institut and IFA bring Turner Prize-winning German photographer Wolfgang Tillmans' work to South Africa for the first time with this huge retrospective exhibition, Fragile. This follows shows in Kinshasa and Nairobi. Summing up his artistic practice simply as “I take pictures, to see the world,” Tillmans gained renown for his work on 1990s British club culture.

Fragile provides a comprehensive overview of Tillmans' photography with more than 200 works created between 1986 and 2018 on display.  As well as large-scale prints and unframed photographs, the exhibition also includes sculptural objects, video installations and music. Throughout all of his works there is a constant, tangible feeling of intimacy, empathy and familiarity which reflects Tillmans' never-ceasing curiosity and fearless approach towards photography.
