Exhibition - Bernd and Hilla Becher Basic Forms Print E-mail
Wednesday, 21 May 2008 03:13


When: Ongoing till  September 14th, 2008
What: Exhibition of the works of Bernd and Hilla Becher

There is a certain beauty that transcends from industrial architecture. Bernd and Hilla Becher photographed Industrial buildings in Western Europe for nearly 50 years, generating a great body of work documenting these buildings. Their style is quite recognizable and their work is praised for its artistic value.

 As stated on the Getty's Web Site:

"By organizing photographs in grid formations for exhibition or in linear sequences for publication, the Bechers demonstrated their interest in a typological exploration of form. These typologies encourage viewers to identify what remains constant in the basic form of structures that share the same function and to compare details that differ according to regional and stylistic preferences.

Bernd Becher (1931–2007) and Hilla Wobeser (born 1934) met in Düsseldorf, Germany in 1959 where both attended the Art Academy. Fascinated by the sculptural forms of the industrial structures that rose from the landscape of the nearby region of Siegen, where he grew up, Bernd soon began working with Hilla to record the typical yet "anonymous" architecture of the region's coal mines, iron ore plants, and workers' housing.

For the next four and a half decades, they collaborated on all aspects of their self-assigned project, documenting lime kilns, cooling towers, blast furnaces, winding towers, water towers, gas tanks, and other industrial structures throughout western Europe and eventually expanding the reach of their study to include Great Britain and the United States.
   
Published in 1977, Framework Houses of the Siegen Industrial Region is the first of many monographs of the Bechers' work that focuses on a single type of structure. The half-timbered construction of these simple houses, some of which are adorned with slate shingles to protect against moisture, is characteristic of the Siegerland, a farming and mining region surrounding the town of Siegen, east of Düsseldorf.

The Bechers classified their pictures into categories of gable sides, slated gable sides, street and rear views, slated street and rear views, corner views, and groups of houses. They also included Abwicklungen, or the unfolding of individual houses in eight views to document each house in its entirety. While the Bechers' titles essentially provide the addresses of these structures, it is not necessary for the viewer to locate them geographically to appreciate unique details in relation to fundamental form.


If individual images by Bernd and Hilla Becher are best characterized by the principle of objectivity, then groups of images are most readily associated with the notion of typology, or the study of types. From the beginning, the identification of types was an important aspect of their work; basic forms are a reflection of function, while details of material and style express regional preferences.

The typology occurs in two forms—in grids of identically sized photographs that encourage comparisons based on horizontal, vertical, and diagonal adjacencies (as in the typology of nine water towers depicted here), and in monographs that sequence identically printed reproductions in more traditional linear progressions. In both cases, careful looking leads to the discernment of what is essential to each functional category and to an appreciation of subtle differences within each category. The Becher's utilization of a standardized format facilitates the comparative analysis of structures that might be in the same geographic region or separated by thousands of miles, or that have outlived their usefulness and may no longer exist."
