The work of German photographer Dieter Blum (born 1936) is presented for the first time in the UK in two parallel exhibitions held in the West Midlands and organised by the Mercedes-Benz Art Collection, Stuttgart/Berlin.

The exhibition Dieter Blum. Cowboys. The first shooting, 1992. Photographs from the Mercedes-Benz Art Collection on Show at Weston Park is organised in partnership with the Weston Park Foundation and focuses on the artist’s novel take on the cowboy subject, developed in this series which emerged in 1992 as trial shoots for the famous Marlboro advertising campaign. The photographs are now shown for the first time internationally since their rediscovery and purchase by the Mercedes-Benz Art Collection in 2016.

Wolverhampton School of Art Est. 1851, University of Wolverhampton, in a collaboration with Dieter Blum and the Photography Department of this art school – one of the first to have been founded in the UK – is opening its 2018 degree show with the exhibition Dieter Blum. XTC. Dance and Eros. Selected Photographs. Here, the public will be offered a selection of the photographer’s acclaimed nude shots of ballet dancers (1994–98) and meet Dieter Blum on the occasion of an artist’s talk hosted by the school.
