Bernd and Hilla Becher, Gravel Plants, 1988–2001


Bernd and Hilla Becher and the Photographic Afterlife of Heavy Industry

Thursday, July 14, 6–7 pm
Bonnie J. Sacerdote Lecture Hall, Uris Center for Education

Artists Bernd and Hilla Becher focused on a single subject: the disappearing industrial architecture of Western Europe and North America that fueled the modern era. Their photographic typologies of industrial architecture can be seen as, among many other things, a memorial to places of modern industry and the monoliths it imposed on the landscape. Join scholars and writers for a discussion about interpreting these photographs in the present day and how they might be perceived in the future.

Free, though advance registration is required.
