Rut Blees Luxemburg

Rut Blees Luxemburg is as an artist and photographer who deals with the representation of the city and the phenomenon of the urban, combining several formats, ranging from large-scale photographic works, through public art installations and operatic mise-en-scène. Blees Luxemburg has been the subject of a monograph, Commonsensual,  which details projects including the opera, Liebeslied/My Suicides, devised with the philosopher Alexander Garcia Düttmann, and documents public art installations such as Caliban Towers, with muf architects, and Piccadilly’s Peccadilloes in Heathrow Airport. She made the iconic cover for the The Streets’ Original Pirate Material.

Rut Blees Luxemburg is a reader in Urban Aesthetics at The Royal College of Art.
