This exhibition shows the work of Candida Höfer, a disciple of the school of Bernd and Hilla Becher and one of the most important members of the new school of contemporary German photography, which emerged at the end of the 1980s.

Her photographs of the interiors of buildings specifically dedicated to social life and teaching, such as theaters, churches, libraries, and museums are distinctive for the immersive atmosphere achieved by the meticulous management of light, structural examination, and rigorous precision allowing the characteristic variations of the spaces to stand out. The result is large format spatial portraiture in which planes and colors, as well as relationships between order and disorder coalesce. The spectator is subsumed into the works, discovering these places just as they are, but observing through a contemporary gaze the historical and esthetic baggage of the sites.
