Düsseldorf starts building its Grand Départ celebrations this week when Mythos Tour de France, an exhibition of work from world-renowned photographers and artists, opens at the NRW-Forum.
Other photographers whose work appears in Düsseldorf to have previously been published in Rouleur include Philipp Hympendahl and Stephan Vanfleteren, whose “Flandrien” series appeared back in issue 5 of the magazine.
Düsseldorf-based artist Reinhard Mucha’s work appeared in the German Pavillion at the Venice Biennale in 1990. He is also an ardent cyclist as are, of course, fellow city residents Kraftwerk, whose 2003 album Tour de France forms the centrepiece of a multi-media installation.
Kölln’s celebrated book “The Peloton”, capturing rider’s faces within seconds of crossing the finish line and published by Rouleur in 2010, makes a welcome return, alongside work where Timm has switched his focus to the other end of the body: “The Peloton Legs”.
Timm’s last work to appear in Rouleur was ‘The Road From Damascus” in issue 67, the extraordinary story of Syrian refugees racing in Berlin.
Olaf Unverzart’s collaboration with Sebastian Schels and Andrew Curry on Germany’s cycling revival will appear in the forthcoming Tour de France edition, on sale in June.
