Stirring paintings, colourful picture collages made from countless scraps of paper, moving photo collages – the art of Tammam Azzam (*1980 in Damascus) is multi-faceted, political and topical. The publication provides a comprehensive overview of the oeuvre of the Syrian artist and describes his career over the past 20 years.
Twenty years of the life and work of Tammam Azzam – from Syria and Damascus via Dubai to Delmenhorst and Berlin, where the artist has lived and worked since 2018. The volume Bilder ohne Namen / Untitled Pictures traces Tammam Azzam’s life and his art, from the early reduced paintings via the digital photomontages and the large-format pictorial collages to his latest acrylic pictures. Azzam’s iconic pictorial inventions engrave themselves into our memory.
