Bernd & Hilla Becher: At Museo Morandi
by Giafranco Maraniello
Publisher's Description
To the present day, Bernd & Hilla Becher have published 15 books with Schirmer/Mosel, and there is no end in sight since the archive of industrial buildings in the Dusseldorf-based photographers Bernd and Hilla Becher complied over more than 50 years still contains many undiscovered treasures. Documenting buildings of the industrial age threatened with dereliction or demolition, they created a hitherto unique photographic inventory in individual 'portraits' and typological series. The photographers received international recognition with various prizes and awards, as well as held exhibitions of their works in galleries and museums all over the world.

The latest exhibition project is a small, carefully compiled show at Museo Morandi in Bologna, which will open on January 23, 2009. Alongside 14 duotone plates, the accompanying catalog will contain an interview with Hilla Becher (Bernd Becher died in 2007), conducted by Giafranco Maraniello, Director of Museo Morandi.
