Turner Prize 2000 artists: Wolfgang Tillmans

Wolfgang Tillmans won the Turner Prize 2000 for his exhibitions at Interim Art, London, Städtische Galerie, Remscheid, and Andrea Rosen Gallery, New York, all in 1999 and for a number of publications of his work which strikingly engages with contemporary culture while challenging the boundaries between art and photography and between the genres of portraiture, documentary and still life.
