Urban Spaces in photographs from the SpallArt Collection


Architectural photographs and images of the city are a major thematic focus of the SpallArt Collection. The selection ranges from early Far Eastern city views from the second half of the 19th century to works of the New Seeing of the 1930s to contemporary positions and video works. Under several broad aspects, the exhibition shows over 100 works, while also offering an interesting glimpse behind the scenes and into the collection's depot.
