In this new dialogue format, artists, experts and companions of William Eggleston take a subjective look at the formative work of the US pioneer of color photography, who contributed significantly to the establishment of photography as an art form. During joint tours through the exhibition, the audience is invited to engage with Eggleston's influence on the art world from very different perspectives. Away from a classical photo-historical localization, the format is about exciting background information on Eggleston's creative phases, which are illuminated by means of selected works, the production process of his photographs or very personal anecdotes about his iconic images. 

The first tour is with the German visual artist Jörg Sasse, who has written an essay for the publication accompanying the exhibition. While William Eggleston is primarily categorized as a pioneer of American color photography or time and again as a 'documentarist' of a bygone era, Jörg Sasse takes a look at what is special about William Eggleston's vision and speaks of mastery, misunderstandings and music when looking at selected originals in the exhibition.

Jörg Sasse is a visual artist who has been working with and about the medium of photography since the 1980s. He taught as a university professor for documentary photography in Essen.
