A major survey of photography originating from the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf after 1976. The exhibition offers an opportunity to see varying interpretations of the German ‘New Objectivity’ style championed by Bernd and Hilla Becher side by side, including meditations on architecture and landscape by their former pupils Candida Höfer, Andreas Gursky, Axel Hütte, Thomas Ruff, Elger Esser and Thomas Struth, also known today as the Düsseldorf School of Photography. These documentary representations of existing spaces will be complemented by the photography of Thomas Demand, a former sculpture student at the Kunstakademie, who models life-sized rooms and buildings for exacting depiction.
