9780500542729: Candida Hofer: A Monograph

After training at the Kunstakademie in Dusseldorf, Candida Hofer studied photography with Bernd and Hilla Becher from 1976 to 1982. The influence of the precise, scientifically minded Bechers (under whom Andreas Gursky, Thomas Struth and Thomas Ruff also studied), is very apparent in Hofer's work. Her images are predominantly of public spaces - libraries, auditoriums, lobbies, museums, club houses. Hofer's recent photographs present a systematic study of rooms in various libraries, some modern and institutional, others centuries old and grand. Her straightforward and detached style seems at first objective and purely documentary, but is ultimately overtaken by incongruous elements and the mimetic nature of her subject matter. People are noticeably absent from her highly formal images. Instead, Hofer emphasizes repeated forms within the rooms such as chairs, tables, bookshelves and light fixtures to create patterns and produce a sense of orderliness. However, despite their conspicuous absence, it is people in whom Hofer is most interested; our culture and lifestyle are reflected in the architecture and interiors we create.

From the Author:

Candida Hofer, born in Eberswalde, Germany, in 1944, studied with Bernd Becher at the Dusseldorf Art Academy. Along with numerous international shows, she participated in documenta 11 and represented Germay at the 2003 Venice Biennial.

From the Inside Flap:

The German city of Weimar, home to illustrious Renaissance and Baroque artists such as Cranach and Bach, became a major place of pilgrimage in the 18th century. With her famous library and with distinguished literary circles, Duchess Anna Amalia laid the foundations for the flourishing of literary expression in the city. Her son, Duke Karl August, called Herder, Goethe and Schiller to his court. With them, Weimar became the center of German intellectual life, the "city of poets and thinkers"--a reputation Weimar has nurtured to the present day. For her libraries project, Candida Hofer photographed the Duchess Anna Amalia Library in 2004.

Descrizione libro Schirmer Mosel, 2003. Cloth. Condizione libro: New. Condizione sovraccoperta: New. 251pps color and bw illus, oversized, volume.Ever since her first photographic projects in the early 70s, Candida Höfer’s primary interest has been public space: interiors such as libraries, lecture halls, lobbies, museums, club houses, and the urban landscape, with its public squares, streets, or zoos. Over the years people gradually disappeared from her pictures and yet the presence of humans became ever more manifest in her empty rooms—attested to by the absence of those for whom they were built or furnished. Foregoing any spectacular staging of the locations, Höfer imbues the emptiness with substance by a subtle attention to color. The silence thus instilled with a metaphysical quality lends a voice to the objects—above and beyond the eloquence of the furnishings or the pathos of the architecture. With 209 photographs, the present volume is the first major monograph on the œuvre of Candida Höfer, one of the greats of the current international photographic and art community. new unread copy, as issued, a beautiful copy, has a very tiny bit of shelf wear on edge else pristine. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Codice libro della libreria 023791
