  • Catalogue Essay

    “Ruff seems to be playing off the technical and compositional precision of the take against the anonymity of the banal street scene, staging a clash between the anonymous placelessness of the view and a photographic precision that always suggests a concrete locality. Given that this inconspicuous side street could just as well be in Essen, Munich-Giesing or Cologne-Bickendorf, all we really have is its image, a general image of a particular banality.” (M. Winzen, Thomas Ruff: 1979 to the Present, Cologne: König, 2001, p. 137)
