Thomas Ruff

Ralph Goertz, Institut für Kunstdokumentation und Szenografie, Düsseldorf, DE 2011, 50’, D

Over a period of two years, the Düsseldorf-based art documentary filmmaker Ralph Goertz accompanied Thomas Ruff, a main representative of the so-called Düsseldorf School of Photography, in his studio and on location. The film provides interesting insights into the work and process of the artist. His strictly monologue-like commentaries result in a markedly self-centered impression – which quickly reveals itself as an effective stylistic device for conveying Ruff’s way of thinking and working.
