For over 40 years, artists Bernd and Hilla Becher photographed the architecture of industrialisation: water towers, coal bunkers, blast furnaces, gas tanks and factory facades. They did so in an obsessively formalist way that defined a style, and made them one of the most dominant influences in contemporary European photography and art.
This documentary is part of a winter film series presented in association with the Geothe-Institut New Zealand.
