Join Thomas Struth and Tobia Bezzola as they interrogate Struth’s photographic subjects, technique and influences. Whilst people are conspicuously absent from his street sense of 1970s Düsseldorf, New York and Paris, his renowned images of museums and family portraits are crowded with people. Investigate how Struth’s photographs reveal the cultural, historical and psychological intricacies of looking which permeate through contemporary culture.

Thomas Struth is a German photographer whose work builds on the foundation of first- and second-generation Neue Sachlichkeit (New Objectivity) German photography.

Tobia Bezzola is the Director of The Museo d’arte della Svizzera italiana (MASI Lugano)
