Thomas Struth’s Crosby Street, Soho, New York 1978, 1978, will be on view in the exhibition BOHEMIA: History of an idea, 1950–2000. Bohemia is a real place that has also given its name to a cultural movement and way of living. From its origins in mid-nineteenth-century Paris, the idea of bohemia has been a powerful and persistent component of artistic identity, with a reputation for living outside societal norms.  This exhibition looks at the differences and continuities in a variety of bohemian scenes, concluding at the end of the twentieth century, when commodity culture began to undermine this way of life. Nevertheless offering an alternative to conformity, the bohemian idea still beckons with ways of living that continue to galvanise and inspire.

Work by Thomas Struth is currently on view as part of the group show ON STAGE at the mumok, Vienna. The exhibition explores the various theatrical and stage-related forms of expression in art since the 1960s, when a neo-avant-garde critical of tradition began focusing on performative and actionist art forms that endowed artists with a stage-like presence, often in front of an audience. The exhibition includes 150 works and work series, spanning Viennese Actionism, Dadaist theatre, the Fluxus-Movement, as well as cinematic and musical productions, most of which are culled from the holdings of the mumok collection.

Archive Matrix Assembly: The Photography of Thomas Struth 1978–2018 (publication)

Archive Matrix Assembly: The Photography of Thomas Struth 1978–2018 presents the first comprehensive, systematic theory of Thomas Struth’s main body of photographic work from its beginnings in the late 1970s until his most recent work in 2018. The book presents a unique, evolutionary understanding of the work, proposing that it has established three stages of production: archive, matrix, and assembly. Together the three stages form a developmental system that characterizes the individual photographs, their relation to their subject matter, and how they form larger, significant collections of images. The book project accomplishes three main goals: it develops a comprehensive critical reading of the work, it serves as a monograph of the artist, and it provides an extensive analysis of the photographs at all stages, including the less discussed, more recent photography, which is placed on par with the earlier work for which Struth first became internationally renowned.
