Seeing Zumthor (Hardback)

Kobi Gantenbein


Hans Danuser is among the foremost contemporary Swiss photographic artists. He has gained particular recognition for his art projects in collaboration with architects and for his architectural photography. His work has been shown internationally in solo and group exhibitions and is represented in public collections, such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Stadtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus in Munich, the Kunsthaus Zurich and the Fotomuseum Winterthur, Switzerland. His photographs of buildings by the celebrated Swiss architect Peter Zumthor ignited a lively debate on buildings, images and history when they were first shown twenty years ago and have since made their way around the world in magazines and books.They were the result of a carte blanche Zumthor had offered to Danuser: an artist's radically subjective look at the work of another artist representing a different discipline. "Seeing Zumthor - Images by Hans Danuser" presents a selection of Danuser's Zumthor-pictures. An accompanying essay investigates the effect of Danuser's work on the photographic depiction of architecture, and in a discussion Hans Danuser explains the idea and concept behind his images of Zumthor's buildings.
