German photographer Candida Höfer (born 1944) is a former student of the iconic teachers Bernd and Hilla Becher and is well known for her painstakingly composed interior shots capturing the grandeur of public spaces such as libraries, palaces and opera houses. Accompanying her joint exhibition at Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein and the Hilti Art Foundation, this volume documents her recent series of around 20 photos taken in Liechtenstein between autumn and winter of 2021. The images reflect her ongoing exploration of scenes of cultural life and architecture. Including emails, text messages and notes by those involved in the project, the publication takes the form of a production diary, affording critical insights into Höfer's process, from the initial idea for the show to the final selection of works. Another section documents the exhibition itself, including selected works from the collections of both institutions.

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.

The photographs of Candida Höfer (born 1944) are internationally famed for their technical exactitude and conceptual clarity. Ralph Geortz's 50-minute portrait of Höfer, shot between 2003 and 2013, allows a rare inside view into the life and work of the artist.

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.

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 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.
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.

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.

This pocket-sized volume showcases, ironically, some of the most monumental recent work by the German photographer, Candida Höfer. It features 52 stunning architectural interiors and hushed details from some of the most important historical public institutions in the city of Dresden, including museums, libraries, archives and performing arts centers.

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.

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.
