Candida Höfer’s (b. Eberswalde, 1944; lives and works in Cologne) shots of deserted libraries, opera houses, concert halls, churches, and museums have made her a member of the international photographic avant-garde. Together with Andreas Gursky, Axel Hütte, Thomas Ruff and Thomas Struth, she studied in the first photography class of Bernd Becher at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf. The works of Candida Höfer have been exhibited at documenta 11 and in 2003 she represented Germany at the 50. Biennale di Venezia alongside Martin Kippenberger.
Candida Höfer was invited to photograph the spectacular architecture of the Elbphilharmonie ahead of its official opening. With 82 meters, the depicted escalator is the longest in the world, which leads visitors to the public plaza in 37 meters above ground. The edition is released on the occasion of the book Candida Höfer – Editions 1987–2020. It is the first publication to gather all editions of Candida Höfer, providing a representative cross-section of her oeuvre.

The Kunsthistorisches Institut Bonn, Yesterday and Today
The imposing presence of architecture captured in the absence of humans: that is the defining characteristic of the photographs with which Candida Höfer (b. 1944, Eberswalde; lives and works in Cologne) has risen to international renown. In 1992, she captured the Kunsthistorisches Institut der Rheinischen Friedrich- Wilhelms-Universität Bonn in ten analogue black-and-white pictures that have not been on public display. In 2020, Höfer returned to the institute to take more pictures using a digital camera. The two series now make their public début in the institute’s halls and are gathered in this book. Undertaking a historically and aesthetically captivating comparison, Höfer probes the ways in which university life has changed over almost three decades.
Candida Höfer was a member of Bernd Becher’s inaugural photography class at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf. Her works were shown at documenta 11 in 2002, and in 2003, she and Martin Kippenberger represented Germany at the 50th Biennale di Venezia.
