Thomas Demand is a German artist of the contemporary. He is well-known for his photographs. Thomas Demand’s artworks and editions discuss the relation between imitation and original. The large-format photographs show elaborately designed paper and cardboard works of recreated scenes of famous press photos, crime scenes, and the seemingly ordinary. These models are photographed and then destroyed. Only the photograph as presentation of the imitation remains unchanged.

Thomas Demand’s artworks and editions seem lifeless at first glance, characterised by absolute silence, and alienated from the actual theme.
Demand's works are represented in countless international collections and museums.
