Summary

The Dsseldorf School has become an acknowledged label, and today is synonymous with high artistic standards and a highly diverse and innovative approach to the medium. Our book deals with three issues: The work and teachings of Hilla and Bernd Becher who in 1976 gave artistic photography an institutional roof at the Dsseldorf Art Academy. Two generations of celebrated artists have since emerged, including Thomas Struth, Thomas Ruff, Andreas Gursky, Candida Hfer, Petra Wunderlich, Axel Htte, Elger Esser, Laurenz Berges et al. And finally the image factory, "Grieger Lab," where the artists discovered the technical potential of large-format photography. Today, Grieger Lab produces big prints for more than 150 artists the world over. The book offers a first encyclopedic overview and introduces the artists with their best-known pictures. There has been no other art movement in Germany since the Bauhaus to possess such a worldwide appeal as this new Dsseldorf School.
