Candida Hofer: Kunsthistorisches Institut Bonn
(1000 items available)
The imposing presence of architecture captured in the absence of humans: that is the defining characteristic of the photographs with which Candida Höfer has risen to international renown. In 1992, she captured the Kunsthistorisches Institut Bonn in ten analogue black-and-white pictures that have not been on public display. Undertaking a historically and aesthetically captivating comparison, Höfer probes the ways in which university life has changed over almost three decades.In 2020, Höfer returned to the institute to take more pictures using a digital camera. The two series now make their public début in the institute’s halls and are gathered in this book.
