Candida Höfer: Turks in Germany 1979

A rare artistic reflection on changing social & cultural landscapes

Renowned artist Candida Höfer (b. 1944) is best known for her large-format photographs of vacant, sober, and highly detailed interiors. One of her earliest series, however, focused on “guest workers” who joined West Germany’s labor force after World War II. In this lecture, the artist will discuss the photographic series, titled Turks in Germany 1979. The work is featured in our current special exhibition Crossing Lines, Constructing Home: Displacement and Belonging in Contemporary Art.


Free admission, but seating is limited. Tickets will be distributed beginning 5:30pm at the Broadway entrance. One ticket per person.

Following the program, guests are invited to visit the Crossing Lines, Constructing Home exhibition on Level 3 until 8pm.

Complimentary parking available in the Broadway Garage, 7 Felton Street, Cambridge.

The Busch-Reisinger Museum Lectures, sponsored by the German Friends of the Busch-Reisinger Museum, present important speakers on topics of central and northern European art.

In addition, modern and contemporary art programs at the Harvard Art Museums are made possible in part by generous support from the Emily Rauh Pulitzer and Joseph Pulitzer, Jr., Fund for Modern and Contemporary Art.
