Mexico City - Exhibition

Candida Höfer in Mexico

Museo San Ildefonso

05 Apr 201730 Jul 2017

As part of the celebrations of the Mexico – Germany Dual Year, the exhibition includes a  series of 25 large-format photographs and 13 small-format photographs  of iconic Mexico buildings by the German photographer. The exhibition aims to provide the public with a guide to appreciate and revalue the rich architectural heritage of our country.

Höfer’s photographs have been characterized by a close glance to the inaccessible and private life of the buildings which, passing through the inherent difficulties of the perception of the architecture, provide images that return the aura of works of art to the public spaces. Unique art.
