Peter Fischli & David Weiss: 800 Views of Airports

Published by Walther König, Köln

Featured image is reproduced from <I>Peter Fischli & David Weiss: 800 Views of Airports</I>.800 Views of Airports documents a lengthy series of work by Peter Fischli (born 1952) and David Weiss (1946-2012), comprising 1,010 photographs to date, all of which appear here complete for the first time. For this ongoing documentary project, the artistic duo photograph the airports they passed through in their travels around the world over nearly 25 years, in a quest for exotic banality throughout different cultures. Their images of these nondescript airports focus on the humdrum aspect of air travel: the fuel vehicles, the baggage trucks, the daily routines of airport workers, the long antiseptic corridors and sprawling tarmacs surrounded by panoramic views of empty vistas. Whether presenting a Lufthansa airplane sitting idle in a yellowy light, a Swiss Air plane waiting in a neon-haunted dusk or an Air France plane getting its belly filled in the dead of night, Fischli and Weiss’s images present the evanescence of any national identity when reduced to a symbol on a vertical stabilizer. 800 Views of Airports reveal the non-places encircling our world, and the non-journeys that have come to define our contemporary life in transit, while simultaneously offering carefully composed images that are strangely placid and restful.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

BOMB

Alain De Botton

Like all great artists, they pry our eyes open to new forms and hitherto unexpected beauty and interest. "There was no fog in London before Whistler painted it," remarked Oscar Wilde, and had he known the Swiss duo, he might have added, that there were far fewer airports in the world before Fischli and Weiss began to photograph them.

T Magazine

An extraordinary new book that collects 25 years of photos taken by the Swiss duo in airports around the world. It's a fitting endnote for Fischli/Weiss, whose deadpan art has long played in the negative spaces of everyday life.
