9783829604062: Bernd & Hilla Becher: At Museo Morandi

To the present day, Bernd & Hilla Becher have published 15 books with Schirmer/Mosel, and there is no end in sight since the archive of industrial buildings the Düsseldorf-based photographers Bernd and Hilla Becher compiled over more than 50 years still contains many undiscovered treasures. Documenting buildings of the industrial age threatened with dereliction or demolition, they created a hitherto unique photographic inventory in individual “portraits” and typological series. The photographers received international recognition with various prizes and awards, as well as held exhibitions of their works in galleries and museums all over the world. The latest exhibition project is a small, carefully compiled show at Museo Morandi in Bologna, which will open on January 23, 2009. Alongside 14 duotone plates, the accompanying catalog will contain an interview with Hilla Becher (Bernd Becher died in 2007), conducted by Gianfranco Maraniello, Director of Museo Morandi.

About the Author:

Bernd and Hilla Becher have collaborated since 1959. Founders of the internationally acclaimed Becher class at the Dusseldorf Art Academy, they have received numerous awards, including the Golden Lion at the 1990 Venice Biennale and the 2002 Erasmus Award. Bernd Becher retired as Professor at the Dusseldorf Academy of Art in 1999.

Hilla Becher met Bernd Becher at the Kunskatademie Dusseldorf and first collaborated in 1959, while working as freelance photographers. Their lifelong commitment has been the systematic documentation of industrial buildings, including water towers and cooling towers, blast furnaces, coal mines and steel mines, gas tanks, and grain elevators. Starting in the late 60s, their work gained worldwide visibility via exhibition in such venues as the George Eastman House, Rochester, New York; Institute of Contemporary Arts, London: Documenta, Kassel, Germany; Bienal de Sao Paulo; Venice Bienale; and Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris. The Bechers were influential professors at the Dusseldorf Art Academy between 1976 and 1996, training a generation of photographers now known collectively as the Dusseldorf School. The Bechers work is represented in major collections worldwide, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and Tate Gallery, London, and they have received numerous awards, among the the Erasmus Prize and the Hasselblad Award. Over a dozen monographs of their work have been published, all focusing on the many faces of industrial architecture.
