Candida Höfer

Candida Höfer is one of the leading artists from Germany, and an internationally renowned photographer part of the Becher school together with Andreas Gursky, Thomas Struth, and Thomas Ruff. After studying film at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, she joined Bernd Becher’s first photography class at the academy. She has gained international attention for her large scale works that photograph interiors of extravagant architectural spaces such as libraries and palaces.

Born 1944 in Germany, lives in Cologne. Höfer has exhibited in numerous museums such as the Kunsthalle Basel, Kunsthalle Bern, Museum MMK für Moderne Kunst, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. She participated in Documenta 11 in 2002, and represented Germany at the Venice Biennale in 2003. Her works are in the collections of museums around the wall, including the Centre Pompidou (France), Guggenheim, Museum of Modern Art in New York (New York), and the Basel Kunstmuseum.
