MICHAEL WOLF. LIFE IN CITIES

10/05/2018 to 22/07/2018
 
High level international photography is once again in the spotlight at Fondazione Stelline with Life in Cities, the first major exhibition devoted to Michael Wolf ever held in Italy, the German artist and photographer who developed his talent under the guidance of master Otto Steinert at the Folkwang School in Essen and at Berkeley University in California.

Life in Cities, honored at the latest edition of Les Rencontres d’Arles, is a retrospective exhibition praising the relationship between human density and urban architecture.
On display are 150 works from 6 of his most famous series: from the most recent, Paris Rooftops (2014), to his most renowned series Tokyo Compression (2010-2013), from Informal Solution (2003-2014), Architecture of Density (2003-2014), and Transparent City (2006) dedicated to the complexity of modern cities, up to the early works.
Michael Wolf’s focus zeroes in on the relationship between the city’s social structure and its architecture. His shots and projects seize the traces of human density amidst the complex structures of urban landscape, as in his Paris series where the rooftops linger on the borderline between realistic representation and abstraction.
 
The exhibition, curated by Wim van Sinderen and Alessandra Klimciuk, was produced by Fondazione Stelline in partnership with Fotomuseum Den Haag / The Hague Museum of Photography.
