This richly illustrated catalog shows the work cycle “Tannhäuser Tor” (Tannhauser Gate) by the Berlin-Dresden artist duo Alekos Hofstetter and Florian Göpfert. Their series of drawings, begun in 2012, depicts the distance our society maintains to the post-war architecture of modernism in an imaginary way.
In Göpfert and Hofstetter’s “Tannhäuser Tor,” architecture is freed from any functionality and seems to exist only as a remote idea: Far from their original urban locations, modernist buildings appear as isolated, timeless, fortress-like structures on mountains and hills, in a utopian “new home.”

The catalog includes illuminating essays by Lukas Feireiss and Daniel H. Wild, a founding member of the artists’ group BEWEGUNG NURR.

We would also like to draw your attention to “Tannhäuser Tor II.
