Thomas Demand

Thomas Demand, one of Germany's most iconic contemporary artists, is the focus of a new exhibition at the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin. Demand's work is inspired by photographs that have become memories, recreated as paper sculptures that he then photographs. These "Chinese whispers" are displayed in a giant fish-tank designed as a symbol of freedom and transparency by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Monocle's culture editor Robert Bound reports.
