Luca Zaniers (* 1966) photographs are monumental insights into the political and economic control centers of our global world. Architecture and politics are a tension-filled couple. Whether the Acropolis in Athens or the glass dome of the German Bundestag - architecture has always embodied the power structures of the reigning rulers and institutions. It gives a material form to the respective form of government. In his "Corridors of Power" project, Zanier is looking for current spaces of power and their interiors that are often cut off from the public, such as the meeting room of the Communist Party in Paris (2010). The large-format photographs are characterized by a clear, linear image language and create impressive and unique monuments. There are assembly rooms and plenary chambers, committees and parliaments. This also includes courtrooms and libraries, which stand for executive violence and the ruling knowledge.
