About the artwork

When he started out in Düsseldorf, Jörg Dickmann was initially interested in the work of influential artists such as Andreas Gursky, Thomas Struth, or Thomas Ruff, and particularly the German Objectivist movement initiated by the photographer couple Bernd and Hilla Becher at the Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf. His unique style was affirmed on his many escapades across the globe. Focusing mainly on urban photography, he travelled to Beijing, the Chinese capital that possesses an incredible palette of colours, for those able to tame them. A political, economic, and cultural centre, the city is renowned for its ancient architecture, palaces, imperial gardens, and temples. Today, it is undergoing major transformations and owes its international renown to its contemporary buildings. The Beijing National Stadium is represented in this photograph, also nicknamed the Bird’s Nest, owing to the unique form of its steel architecture, designed by Swiss architects Herzog & De Meuron and at the recommendation of contemporary Chinese artist Ai Weiwei. It represents the Summer Olympic Games of 2008 and hosted the athletics competitions, the final phase of the football tournament, as well as the Opening and Closing Ceremonies.
