This new display presents a selection of photographic works from the UBS Collection. Most of the works were produced during the 1990s and offer a revealing portrait of life at the end of the twentieth century.
These artists have looked at the world with fresh eyes to produce images which confront us with a vision of global social phenomena. Andreas Gursky's iconic 99 Cent features row upon row of brightly packaged goods in a US store, prompting us to consider whether shopping may have replaced the aspirational and devotional elements of religion. Works by Thomas Ruff, Fischli & Weiss and Erwin Wurn are also displayed.
