Candida Höfer, Semper Oper Dresden II 2023, Inkjet Print, 180 x 251 cm, Edition of 6 — Credits: Candida Höfer, VG Bild-Kunst Bonn 2024

One of the most culturally rich opera houses in the German-speaking world, the Semper Opera in Dresden, was still missing from Candida Höfer’s series of interior photographs of world-famous opera houses. Last year, the artist succeeded in including the much-performed opera house in her Ĺ“uvre. Candida Höfer was able to use several days of the theater’s summer break to take pictures with her large format camera. The result is fourteen spatial portraits that provide different perspectives of the stage, the auditorium, the workshops, the cloakroom and the staircase. The complete series has been on display since March in the Kupferstichkabinett in Dresden alongside selected woodcuts, copperplate engravings and etchings by Albrecht DĂĽrer, Daniel Hopfer and Giovanni Battista Piranesi. In the solo exhibition “Dresden and elsewhere,” the selection of works in the Semper Opera is expanded to include two of Candida Höfer’s images taken in Liechtenstein in 2021.
