An exhibition that tells the story of a profession and of an imagery, the evolution in the concept of celebrity and its photographic representation over the decades. Paparazzi! presents the work of some very different photographers in a historical investigation of the way we look at the star system: from William Klein, with his ironic take on the world of fashion, to the fake intimate snapshots made by Alison Jackson, using doubles of famous people. Alongside dozens of icons of yesterday and today pictured from close-up, it presents an ample selection of works by contemporary artists, including Cindy Sherman, Thomas Demand and Gerard Richter. Together they explore the complex interaction between image and fame, and the influences that different genres of photography exercise on one another.
