AUSSTELLUNG – Nils Müller ‚Vandals‘ [VIDEO+PHOTOS]

Seit 24.Mai läuft in der Kölner Galerie Ruttkowski68 eine kurze Ausstellung mit Fotodrucken aus Nils Müller´s Fotoserie und Buch ‚Vandals‘. Die Ausstellung ist noch bis 02.Juni 2013 geöffnet, Fotos vom Opening und ein Video unten

After eight years in the making and journeys taking him across the globe, Nils Müller just published his second photo book ‚Vandals‘. Following his 2009 publication ‚Blütezeit‘, ‚Vandals‘, takes the illegal and dangerous activity of graffiti on trains on 192 pages to a more personal level, one that is more detailed and yet, more abstract, too. The photos bear witness to the elaborate level of planning required to carry out the acts. They reveal team spirit as well as heightened emotions and tension, as trainwriters attempt to evade motion detectors and security cameras while scaling barbed wire fences.

Coinciding with the publication of Vandals is an eponymous exhibition showcasing a selection of photographs from the book. Presented in large-sized formats, they bring you closer and deeper into the underbelly of railway graffiti. It’s almost like we are on site ourselves.

Nils Müller is a former graffiti artist who taught himself photography to immortalize his work before it was cleaned up by authorities. It wasn’t long before he realized he wanted to show more than just the defacement of public structures. His photographs elevate graffiti into a sophisticated visual language that thrills both because of its illicit nature and aesthetic value.
