Andreas Gursky: Visual Spaces of Today features forty works by Gursky selected by the artist and Fondazione MAST curator Urs Stahel and spanning his career.

The show features more than forty works that provide an overview of Gursky’s entire artistic career, from his early photographs of the mid-1980s to new works produced in 2022.

The exhibiting artists variously address the airport as site, form, or symbol—often by subverting its iconography and processes, or by tackling its history and politics. Work by Andreas Gursky and Taryn Simon is included.
