Peter Fischli & David Weiss: 800 Views of Airports
Library Shelf Location 18.FISC
Publication Date 2012
Description This publication for the first time documents this legendary series of work 1987-2011, comprising 800 photographs to date. For the very first time the complete series of works will be appearing in form of this publication. Photos of airports taken on Fischli and Weiss's travels around the world since 1987, Airports is an ongoing project reflecting the uniformity of airports thanks to their common function even in different cultures, tantalizing glimpses of national identity gained from onboard aircraft, light at night, raindrops, and the splendid spectacle of the airport through the window. Their images of nondescript airports focus on the banal side of air travel; the fuel vehicles, the baggage trucks, the daily routine of the airport worker. These carefully composed images are strangely placid and restful, without any of the noise and anxiety commonly associated with airports.
