les presses du réel
Beat Streuli - BXL
In this publication Beat Streuli has reunited a new series of images taken in Brussels. Large-scale portraits of passerby and inhabitants of the city compel the viewer to look at the European capital as a metropol, whose melting-pot is forging our new cultural identity.
Swiss artist Beat Streuli (born 1957 in Altdorf, lives and works in Zurich, Brussels and Dusseldorf) takes the urban environment and its inhabitants as the central motif of his work. His photographs are neither documentary nor conceptual: rather they lead us to a form of aesthetics that one could describe as the "glamour of the usual."
Texts by Laurent Busine and Katharina Gregos.
