Candida Höfer - Epic Gaze

Candida Höfer, considered one of the most important conceptual photographers of the latter half of the 20th century, is known for her signature eye-level orthogonal views of architectural interiors of public spaces that are devoid of human presence. Her works inspire people to reflect on the meaning of these spaces that carry religious, aesthetic and humanistic significance. The hardcover catalogue Candida Höfer - Epic Gaze features a total of 60 images of all the artworks in the exhibition chosen from the body of work developed by Höfer over the last 20 years, organised in six major sections: ‘Passages’, ‘Theatres’, ‘Museums’, ‘Libraries’, ‘Worldview’ and ‘Unseen Works’. It also includes an interview between the curators and Höfer about her first solo exhibition in Macao, as well as Herbert Burkert's 'Four Questions and A Disclosure' discussing Höfer's half-century creative process.
