Spectacular City presents the work of about 30 leading artists, Dutch and international, who have chosen the urban landscape as their sphere of activity, such as Olivo Barbieri, Jordi Bernardó, Stèphane Couturier, Andreas Gefeller, Andreas Gursky, Naoya Hatakeyama, Francesco Jodice, Aglaia Konrad, Armin Linke, Karin Apollonia Müller, Bas Princen, Thomas Ruff, Frank van der Salm, Heidi Specker, Jules Spinatsch, Thomas Struth, Michael Wesely, Hans Wilschut and Edwin Zwakman.

The work of these photographers reveals a well-nigh extraterrestrial beauty of urban liminal spaces and sites in transformation. Over recent years they have therefore provided inspiration for a whole new way of looking at the city. Thanks to their gaze, places that were once considered 'ugly', such as port and industrial zones, have acquired a new visual quality.
