Candida Höfer – Affinities, Affinitäten, Affiniteter
"For me, this exhibition provides occasion for introspection: without regard to time, motifs, and forms of presentation, I attempt to determine the common thread of the visual memory that has always been my guide." Born in 1944 and Bernd Becher’s first female student at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, Candida Höfer is one of the greats of international photography.
The new art center Artipelag in Stockholm, which will open its doors on June 3, is presenting a large-scale retrospective of Höfer’s work that spans her early series, such as Liverpool and Turks in Germany, as well as Rodin’s The Burghers of Calais, her photographs of libraries and public spaces, and her most recent series on the Neues Museum in Berlin. The multilingual exhibition catalog (German/English/Swedish) is richly illustrated and includes an essay by psychologist and publicist F. W. Heubach and an introduction by Bo Nilsson.
