Küppersmühle, an industrial mill in the port of Duisburg, Germany, has been converted into a museum. It now displays a great collection of modern and contemporary art. But I never really get to enjoy the art in full because the museum now features two beautiful staircases which are themselves works of art – and they are very distracting!
With some of the old silos still standing, you get a strong industrial vibe while the building also frames the art nicely.
But I compulsively return to the stairs…
The architecture just lends itself to this kind of abstract photography I so much like – using built space for compositions within the rectangualr space of the picture. And I think the pictures lend themselves to contributing to Anne’s wonderful lens artists challenge #251: Buildings and Other Structures. Oh, and here’s one other structure, a work of art nicely interacting with the architecture.
Architecture, art and audience: These three connect in museums, and I always find that facinating. Great architecture seems to open our minds for art, and art always seems to remind us of the vast range of possibilities we have. So, whenever I walk through a museum, there’ll be some favourite finds!
Fenster und Fassaden is Christina’s Magical Motto of the Month. And this time, I just seized the opportunity to show some windows (Fenster) I collected during our last trip to Italy, mainly in and around Lucca. I am always fascinated by glass and by the many shapes and designs of windows people come up with.
Please check out the other façades and windows at episoden.film! There are always great contributions to be seen there – and while Christina’s blog is in German, pictures know of no language barrier.
Fenster und Fassaden is Christina’s Magical Motto of the Month. So I thought I’d share the windows I found when I was taking a walk last Sunday. Don’t miss the other façades and windows at episoden.film!
