PROJECTS: DONE is an exhibition of works from fourteen projects completed by photographer Candida Höfer between 1968 and 2008. Architects Kuehn Malvezzi developed displays in close cooperation with Höfer, and collaborated with curators Markus Heinzelmann and Doreen Mende to create rumination on the interplay between photography, architecture and presentation as the fifteenth project. Here, the term “project” is associated with a planned work that reaches a point of completion or achievement and is thereby distinct from regular artistic activity. By the consideration of the exhibition as a project unto its self, the concept of “project” becomes a sum of smaller project-components bound by themes and limited by time and space. By exploring this “inner order” of art, Candida Höfer’s photographs become less about what is being presented in the frame, and move toward a provocative reflection on art, as it exists in the world.
