PROVENANCE: Private collection Baden-Württemberg.

Following his legendary photographic documentation of the reconstruction of Potsdamer Platz in Berlin between 1997 and 1999, Michael Wesely also followed the more than two years of construction of the Allianz Arena in Munich using his own photographic process. With the help of self-made cameras, the Munich photographer can make extremely long exposures. Different sections of the construction site are captured with different camera settings and finally combined by superimposing these different sequences to create a simultaneous impression of a magical transparency. Wesely's works can be found at, among others, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Kunstmuseum Bonn and the Staatsgemäldesammlung Moderne Kunst in Munich.

In very good condition.
