Conversations with Andreas Gursky – A Museo Haus Lange, Krefeld. 68’ production.
Interview conducted in November 2008 as part of the exhibition Andreas Gursky: Werke / Works 80 - 08 at the Museum Haus Lange in Krefeld, Germany, by its Director Martin Hentschel, and Education Coordinator Thomas Janzen. The artist comments of his formative years with Otto Steiner  and the Becher matrimony, on how he merged the opposing tendencies of their teachings -subjective and objective - in his work.
During the interview he addresses topics such as his method of working in series, the passage of the large format and digital media, and the relationship between photography and painting. He also reflects on how globalization and contemporary life have affected his artwork.
