Basel - Exhibition

Bas Princen. Image and Architecture

Vitra Design Museum

24 Feb 201805 Aug 2018

Dutch artist and photographer Bas Princen portrays architecture and urban landscapes blurring the boundaries between photography and architecture. Thus the large-scale close-ups in the exhibition “Image and Architecture” represent architecture while themselves becoming architectural objects. The motifs vary from Renaissance tapestries and nineteenth-century steel constructions to buildings by Le Corbusier. A special technique of printing and framing lends these pictures a spatial and material presence that extends far beyond the traditional understanding of photographic images.
