Brasília: 50 Anos de Utopia Moderna The catalog "Brasília: 50 Anos de Utopia Moderna" by Siegen's fine art photographer Thomas Kellner shows the most important architectural landmarks of the city of Brasília in an extraordinary and modern way, but typical for the international artist. 50 years ago, the Brazilian president at that time gave the order to build a city that the world had not seen yet. This meant not only a future of architecture, but also a social-political utopia. On 22 April 2010 Brasilía was finally 50 years old. For Thomas Kellner an occasion to investigate the less well known as well as the new, modernist structures by Oscar Niemeyer from 2004 to 2010. The end result of Kellner's work is therefore not a static, fixed image of the buildings, but a unique, multiperspective mosaic of hundreds of individual images that convey the visual impression of instability and movement.
