This week's Slow Art focuses on Bernd and Hilla Becher. The Bechers called their series of photographs “typologies.” By looking at examples from their Water Towers series, this docent-led discussion investigates the way the Bechers’ systematic approach blurs the distinction between photography and conceptual art.
