About the Artwork

Teatro Nacional de Sao Carlos Lisboa is part of a project called In Portugal, which the artist realized between 2005 and 2006. The series consist of a selection of photographs taken in public sites throughout the Iberian country. Typical of Candida Höfer, the artist has photographed empty interiors of libraries, museums, palaces and theaters, focusing on the cultural spaces free from human presence.

"Spaces may or may not invite the image—if they do, they mostly do it with their spatial layers of time… It is then the image that takes the place of the space; the image in its own right."

Candida Höfer

The self-imposed subject restrictions evident in her project are both cultural and formal in nature. The Baroque, modern and contemporary interiors Höfer captures through her lens provide “formal portrait of the social itself,” as it has been defined in Europe since the Enlightenment.
