Full Description

For more than 20 years, photographic artist Tobias Madörin has been working on his series Topos. Metropolises like Barcelona and São Paulo, a Swiss mountain resort like Grindelwald, or foreign countries like Uganda, Indonesia and Japan: with his large scale images he explores dwellings and landscapes. Madörin creates tableaux, similar to 19th-century painters. His particular interests are places where people gather, places on the outskirts of cities along arterial roads, waste disposal sites, or areas changed and scarred by agriculture and mining. He understands such places as products of human visions and ideals, but also as result of exploitation and greed, as sites of fight for survival. Tobias Madörin – Topos is the first monographic book on Madörin’s work, presenting his most important pictures from twenty years. An essay by the journalist and art critic Nadine Olonetzky comments Madörin’s oeuvre and puts it in context of contemporary photography and the history of representing landscapes and cities. Text in English & German.
