Wolfgang Tillmans Is Selling Art Posters to Support Venues Impacted by COVID-19

Enlisting 40 international artists as part of the 2020 Solidarity fundraising campaign.

Acclaimed German artist, Wolfgang Tillmans, is selling posters featuring his original photographs for £50 GBP (approx. $61 USD) to support night clubs, music venues, and art spaces impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. His contribution to the project is a still life taken from his studio — the last picture he printed in his workspace before it was forced to close because of lockdown measures.

Tillmans also enlisted 40 international artists including Betty Tompkins, Mark Leckey, and Andreas Gursky to help with the initiative as part of the 2020 Solidarity fundraising campaign. Posters for purchase include Marlene Dumas’s portrait of James Baldwin to benefit the Siegessäule magazine in Berlin, Gillian Wearing’s All I Ever Wanted Was Love print to support the nightclub Renate, as well as Mark Leckey’s print titled A Changeling Can Change to help the multi-purpose arts space ACUD MACHT NEU in Berlin.

The artist is paying for the printing and shipping costs of the posters so that 100% of the proceeds can help the threatened businesses. “There are many places that may not get help or bailed out because they are informal places, in culture, nightlife, and music. I feel an urgency to do something so they don’t have to close down permanently,” said Tillmans to The Guardian.

View the posters available for purchase and their respective beneficiaries by visiting Between Bridges’ website.
