ZOOM! Picturing Architecture and the City
Opening April 1st at 5p.m.
Contemporary architecture is in a state of radical transformation in terms of responsibility. Architectural photography plays a critical role as a medium of communication and presentation between architects, clients and the general public. Ongoing global urbanization and growing problems caused by migration and social inequality have become focus points for more and more photographers, who are document changing realities and its effects on the living, working and lifestyle conditions of humanity.
The exhibition “Zoom!” features photographs and video works by eighteen international photographers that deal with the relationship and function of architecture with regard to social and economic change. Their work does not focus simply on representation of structures, but approaches to urban structures and their change over time as well as on individual habitats. The juxtaposition of images from different countries and continents – from Italy to Nigeria and China – allows readily for comparisons.
