WG Sebald: Far away - but from where?

Saturday 11 May 2019Sunday 18 August 2019

Exploring writer WG Sebald's use of photography through rare and unseen archive material and related work by leading contemporary artists including Tacita Dean, Tess Jaray and Julie Mehretu. Far away – but from where? presents previously unseen photographs taken by Sebald during his journeys to research the novel Austerlitz. Sebald selected a group images for the novel which appeared as uncaptioned plates. The exhibition will also present images that Sebald sourced from books and newspapers for Vertigo, and how these were re-photographed for publication, a process that took place in the darkroom at the Sainsbury Centre. The exhibition will explore how Sebald blurred fact and fiction in his processes.
