Douglas Gordon

Douglas Gordon (b. 1966, Scotland) is a Berlin-based video and installation artist. His work often involves memory and the disruption of perception; by making his audience aware of their own fugitive subjectivity, he questions how we give meaning to our experience of things. He has won various prizes, among which the Turner Prize (1996), the Hugo Boss Prize by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (1998), the London Award for Art and Performance (2011) and the Käthe-Kollwitz-Preis (2012) by the Akademie der Künste in Berlin. His work has been the subject of numerous museum exhibitions, including shows and venues, such as I am also… Douglas Gordon, Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Tel Aviv (2013); Everything Is Nothing without Its Reflection – A Photographic Pantomime, Museum Folkwang, Essen (2013); Galerie Eva Presenhuber, Zürich (2013); Museum für Moderne Kunst Frankfurt am Main (2011); Tate Britain, London (2010); Blood, Sweat, Tears, DOX Centre for Contemporary Art, Prague (2009); Between Darkness and Light: Works 1989–2007, Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, Germany (2007); Timeline, The Museum of Modern Art, New York (2006, traveled to MALBA Colección Costantini, Buenos Aires through 2007); Superhumanatural, the National Galleries of Scotland, Edinburgh (2006); Pretty much every word written, spoken, heard, overheard from 1989…, the MART, Museo di arte moderna e contemporanea di Trento e Rovereto, Rovereto, Italy (2006); the Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona (2006) and Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (2001).
