Museum Küppersmühle für Moderne Kunst, Duisburg, Germany
This monographic exhibition of Andreas Gursky’s work includes nearly sixty photographs spanning four decades, starting with early works from the Ruhr region in Germany, which Gursky often used as a setting during his studies with Bernd and Hilla Becher at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf.

Museum der bildenden Künste, Leipzig, Germany
For this highly personal retrospective—his first solo exhibition in the city of his birth—Andreas Gursky selected approximately eighty photographs, including around fifty extremely large-format compositions; older iconic works that have imprinted themselves on the visual memory, such as 99 Cent (1999); and new works that have yet to be exhibited in a museum.

City Gallery Wellington, New Zealand
Terminal is an exhibition of international art made about the airport, not for it. The exhibiting artists variously address the airport as site, form, or symbol—often by subverting its iconography and processes, or by tackling its history and politics. Work by Andreas Gursky and Taryn Simon is included.

Kunsthalle Bremen, Germany
This exhibition, whose title translates to Icons: Worship and Adoration, presents a single masterpiece in each of the museum’s sixty galleries complemented by everyday icons—from consumer brands to icons of popular culture, offering an interpretation of the traditional notion of the icon in art juxtaposed with the proliferation of icons in everyday life. The presentation examines various aspects of spirituality, devotion, and adoration. Work by Francis Bacon, Andreas Gursky, Damien Hirst, Yves Klein, Jeff Koons, Bruce Nauman, and Andy Warhol is included.

This exhibition allows the visitor to become familiar with the various faces of ecstasy and with the shifting social significance of mind-altering states as it changed over the centuries. In doing so, it also considers how different cultural spheres handle the phenomenon of ecstasy. With art at its foundation, the show introduces viewers to various ways that artists have approached ecstatic states—including pictorial representations, video, installation works, and kinesthetic experiences. Work by Andreas Gursky, Carsten Höller, and Man Ray is included.
