Feuteu is delighted to present a collection of artworks from the German photographic movement commonly known as the Düsseldorf School of Photography. Which has not only birthed some of today’s most significant and successful photographers, but is also one of the most fundamental photographic movements of the 20th century, leaving an undeniable impact on contemporary photography.
Powerful influencers of the movement were Bernd and Hilla Becher. The Becher’s treatment of photography as an open archive became an underlying structure for young artists like Thomas Ruff and his classmates Andreas Gursky, Thomas Struth and Candida Höfer.
The movement shares works that are dispassionate, observational, distant, and concerned largely with form. Characterised by a sober, documentary quality, straight on (and often expansive) topographic views of landscapes, a focus on cityscapes or interior environments, and the minimisation of the human figure.
A hallmark of the group’s photographs has been a combination of dizzying detail and monumental size, giving the works an immersive quality and contributing to a blurring of the boundaries between photography and painting. The Bechers began as innovative trailblazers attempting to find new ways of looking at and observing objects not previously thought to be worthy of art and contemplation.
