In the absence of people, the interiors Candida Höfer photographs in her characteristically austere style unfold a palpable presence of their own. Concentrating on the aesthetic of abstract structures and relying solely on the light available, she captures the unique atmosphere of a place. The photographs of her latest series, taken in the autumn and winter of 2021, show the architecture of the Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, its libraries and storage rooms in interior and exterior shots. Places of silence and preservation. A diary composed from a collage of notes, text messages and emails between all participants illustrates the conceptual approach and the meticulously planned process of creating the photographs. Höfer’s photographs are juxtaposed with works ranging from classical modernism to the present day by artists such as Josef Albers, Günter Fruhtrunk, Donald Judd, Imi Knoebel, Bruce Nauman, Yves Tanguy and Rosemarie Trockel.

Candida Höfer (* 1944 in Eberswalde, Germany) is among the most important representatives of the Düsseldorf School of Photography associated with Bernd and Hilla Becher. Her works are in international collections and have been exhibited widely and worldwide, including the documenta 11, 2002. Höfer lives and works in Cologne.
