CANDIDA HÖFER Bild und Raum - Im Dialog mit der Sammlung Fotografie der Kunstbibliothek
Museum für Fotografie, Berlin, Germany
25 Mar - 28 Aug 2022
Candida Höfer explores built spaces in her photography. Her world-famous interiors focus on libraries, museums, restaurants, theaters, and other public spaces, allowing us to experience architecture in a new way. In comparison with photographic interiors from the Kunstbibliothek's Photography Collection, which is over 150 years old, a dialogue develops between applied photography and artistic work.
With approximately 90 works, the exhibition at Berlin's Museum für Fotografie opens up a broad cross-section of Candida Höfer's photographs from 1980 to the immediate present. The long tradition of her architectural photographs, however, also extends deep into the classical canon of this field of work. In dialogue with pendants and counter-images from the Kunstbibliothek's Photography Collection, Höfer's particular approach to her pictorial motifs is revealed in a particularly impressive way.
