Alongside Andreas Gursky, Thomas Ruff and Thomas Struth, Candida Höfer (born 1944) belongs to the first generation of photographers that graduated from Bernd and Hilla Becher’s famous class at the Düsseldorf Arts Academy in the early 1980s. Since then, Höfer has traveled the world, photographing at a respectful distance the motifs that she encounters on her travels, whether single objects, architectural spaces or people. Her photographs of public spaces almost devoid of people--interiors, libraries, museums and entrance halls--are characterized by a cool objectivity and the precise rendering of detail. This publication gathers old and new work from the past four decades, with a special emphasis on the works produced in Düsseldorf since her time at the Arts Academy, and on works made since 2011.

Candida Höfer: Haus LudwigCandida Höfer: Haus Ludwig

Published by Moderne Kunst Nürnberg.
Edited by Barbara Engelbach. Preface by Kaspar König, Isabel Pfeiffer-Poensgen. Text by Eduard Beaucamp, Barbara Engelbach.

In Haus Ludwig, Candida Höfer (born 1944), internationally renowned for her photographs of museums and libraries, documents the private collection and interiors of the house of Irene and Peter Ludwig in Aachen, Germany. The collection itself contains a wealth of works by European modernist greats such as August Macke, Fernand Léger, Henri Matisse, Lyonel Feininger and Alexej von Jawlensky, as well as by postwar American Pop-era artists such as Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper Johns and Jackson Pollock. On the occasion of the transfer of nine works from Aachen to the Museum Ludwig, Höfer was invited to portray the unique intertwining of art and architecture at the house, as well as its many special architectural features-old doors, glass panels, grates and ceramic tiles.

Edited by Markus Heinzelmann, Agnes Husslein-Arco. Text by Michael Hagner, Doreen Mende, Michael Oppitz, Estelle Blaschke, et al.

For Candida Höfer, “projects” are works in multiple parts that have a planned, additional course or which are completed once they reach a definitive state. Projects: Done refers to 14 completed projects from between 1968 and 2008. The fifteenth is the presentation itself, which the artist has developed in collaboration with the architects Kuehn Malvezzi.

Candida Höfer: Kuehn MalvezziCandida Höfer: Kuehn Malvezzi

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Text by Chris Dercon, Okwui Enwezor, Axel Sowa.

Candida Höfer brings her rigorous taxonomic eye to the buildings of Johannes Kuehn, Wilfried Kuehn and Simona Malvezzi, who are perhaps better known among artists and gallery owners than among architects, having been responsible for the conversion of the Binding brewery for Documenta 11, the extension of the Hamburger Bahnhof for the Flick Collection and the conversion of a factory building in Düsseldorf for the Stoschek collection.

Candida Höfer: On Kawara, Date Paintings in Private CollectionsCandida Höfer: On Kawara, Date Paintings in Private Collections

Published by Walther König.

From 2004 to 2007, the noted German art photographer Candida Hofer traveled the world to photograph Japanese-born, New York-based Conceptual artist On Kawara's iconic Date Paintings in the homes of private collectors. Because this series of paintings always and only depicts one specific date--in bold, white, capital letters against a darker monochromatic ground--collectors often choose their own for a sentimental reason like a birthday, a special anniversary or an important day in history. Because of this, the paintings are often given pride of place within a collection; in many cases they are situated in a place where the collector spends much of his or her time. All this being said, Kawara is widely considered one of the most important artists of the postwar era, and his work can be found in many of the most significant private collections in the world--among them Friedrich Christian Flick's, Leonard and Luise Riggio's, David and Monica Zwirner's, Kasper König's, Jutta Linthe and Walther König's, Thomas Struth's and Yvon Lambert's. Thus Hofer's photographs capture the paintings in very good company, both in terms of their artistic companions and of the overall aesthetics of the spaces they inhabit.

Candida Höfer: Bologna SeriesCandida Höfer: Bologna Series

Published by Hopefulmonster.
Text by Ludovico Pratesi, Filippo Maggia.

German photographer Candida Höfer makes large-format photographs of empty interiors and social spaces that capture the "psychology of social architecture." In this small volume, her photographs of libraries maintain their monumental feel. They are sober and restrained, disturbed by neither visitors nor users, though Höfer forgoes any staging of the locations. As Michael Kimmelman writes in The New York Times, "Ms. Höfer is a straight photographer whose humanity and improvisatory spirit come across if we are patient enough to appreciate the serendipity of her light, the subtlety of her color and the quiet, melancholy pleasure she seems to take in finding, as if almost by chance, poetry in institutional form."
Born in 1944, German photographer Candida Höfer is a former student of Bernd and Hilla Becher's at the Dusseldorf Art Academy. Her work was recently seen at a one-person show at the ICA Philadelphia.

Candida Höfer: Architecture Of AbsenceCandida Höfer: Architecture Of Absence

Published by Aperture.
Essays by Constance Glenn, Virginia Heckert and Mary Kay Lombino.

Candida Höfer creates meticulously composed images of public and institutional spaces marked with the richness of human activity, yet largely devoid of human presence. Whether a photograph of a national library or a lounge at Volkswagen's headquarters, Höfer's images ask us to conduct distanced, disengaged examinations through the windows she creates. The collected images present a universe wholly constructed by human intention, unearthing patterns of order and logic imposed on these spaces by their absent creators and inhabitants. The Architecture of Absence examines Höfer's oeuvre and its relationship to the work of other noted students of renowned professors Bernd and Hilla Becher.

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Photographs by Candida Höfer. Text by Susanna Kumschick, Annegret Nippa, Michael Oppitz, Peter Herbstreuth.

This volume of Höfer's most recent photographs made inside ethnographic museums reveals a self-contained world of clinical and regimented installations, eerily devoid of any human presence. Other photographs guide us through equally fascinating behind-the-scenes museum locations--storerooms, archives, workshops and restoration studios.

Candida Höfer: TwelveCandida Höfer: Twelve

Published by Schirmer/Mosel.
Photographs by Candida Hàfer. Text by Pascal Beausse, Annette Haudiquet.

In 1347, during the seige of Calais, King Edward III agreed to spare the population of the town on the condition that six of the most important citizens leave Calais bareheaded and barefoot, with a rope around their necks, carrying the keys to the town and the castle. In 1884, the City of Calais commissioned August Rodin to create what is arguably his most famous bronze statue, The Burghers of Calais, a radically new type of monument devoid of all heroic transfiguration. In 1997, the twelfth and last cast of The Burghers was unveiled in Seoul, and the City of Calais thus decided to commission a new work on the subject by Candida Hofer. In her trademark austere, unpretentious and sensitively detailed photographs, the artist captured the twelve casts of the sculpture at their locations across the world: in museums and squares in Paris, Tokyo, Brussels, London, Copenhagen, Washington, Philadelphia, Basel, Mariemont/Belgium, Pasadena, Seoul and Calais.
