Mythos Tour de France

19th May 2017 at 11:00 am - 30th July 2017 at 6:00 pm BST

Free

Breathtaking landscapes, highly-charged places and riders stylised as heroes. The Tour de France is permeated with mystique, legends and icons and has always attracted the world’s best photographers. In the summer of 2017, the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf will provide a double arena for a major sporting event and a media event. Not only will the route for the Grand Départ go directly past the Ehrenhof but the Tour will also be coming into the exhibition space.

 

 

An international group exhibition will showcase the powerful imagery of the most important bike race in the world. From Robert Capa, Harry Gruyaert through John Vink and right up to Andreas Gursky, the show will shine a light on the eventful history of the Tour de France and will show its glorious side as well as its dark side. It will tell the stories behind the great icons of the world of bicycle racing and will demonstrate how sporting events and image events are interdependent.

 

 

Andreas Gursky, Guy Le Querrec, Harry Gruyaert, John Vink, Kai Schäfer, Laurent Cipriani, Louis Malle, Martin Höfer, Nicola Mesken, Olaf Unverzart, Otto Berchem, Pascal Rivet, Paul Smith, Philipp Hympendahl, Richard Kalvar, Robert Capa, Stephan Vanfleteren, Timm Kölln
