Candida Höfer


The Goethe-Institut China is pleased to announce that Candida Höfer has accepted the invitation of jury in this year's "Three Shadows Photography Awards". During the "Three Shadows Festival", they will show the documentary, "Candida Höfer" by Ralph Goertz, head of the Institute for Art Documentation and Scenography. Goertz is considered one of the most prestigious cinematic portrait artists in the visual arts field. For ten years, he accompanied Candida Höfer while taking and selecting pictures in preparation for the exhibition.

Candida Höfer lives and works in Cologne and is one of Germany's most renowned contemporary artists. She was a student of the Becher-School and is considered a representative of the Düsseldorf School of Photography. In the 1980s, she began taking photographs of interiors and created numerous series of photography dedicated to public spaces.

"Her subjects are mostly interiors, places of encounter, of communication, and of knowledge - spaces for living that were created by people, spaces for living that also have a function in life." said art historian Anne Ganteführer-Trier.

Candida Höfer's work is shown in museums like the Kunsthalle Basel, the Kunsthalle Berne, the Portikus, Frankfurt am Main, and the Museum of Modern Art, New York, etc. In 2013, the artist had a solo exhibition at the Museum Kunstpalast Düsseldorf. In 2002, Candida Höfer participated in the exhibition "Documenta 11". In 2003, she represented Germany at the Biennale in Venice (together with the late Martin Kippenberger).

"I take photographs of public and semi-public spaces from different eras. These are rooms that are accessible to everyone. They are places of encounter, of communication, of knowledge, of relaxation, and of recuperation. They may be spa facilities, hotels, waiting rooms, museums, libraries, universities, banks, churches, and, for a number of years now, zoos. All of the rooms have a function in life, and the things within these rooms have a function, too." - Candida Höfer
