Berlin 1945-2000 – A Photographic Subject

38,00

Berlin 1945–2000 – A Photographic Subject explores how German and international photographers alike photographed Berlin between the immediate postwar years and the end of the twentieth century. Curator and art historian Candice M. Hamelin selected exemplary works by more than twenty photographers.

The book, which is published to accompany a major exhibition at the Reinbeckhallen in Berlin—opens with black-and-white photographs of Berlin in ruins and concludes with images of Berlin’s urban development projects after the fall of the Berlin Wall that are often in color and taken with exposure times of up to several years. Images that belong to the genres of street, subjective, architectural, conceptual, portrait, and experimental photography can be found between these two sections. In dialogue with each other, the images in Berlin 1945–2000 – A Photographic Subject underscore the immense social, cultural, and political changes the city underwent and, at the same time, the various photographic practices and tendencies that developed in Berlin over the course of fifty-five years.

Photographers in alphabetical order: Wilfried Bauer, Sibylle Bergemann, Kurt Buchwald, Arno Fischer, Nan Goldin, Herbert Hensky, Max Jacoby, Karl-Ludwig Lange, Will McBride, Rudi Meisel, Roger Melis, Evelyn Richter, Andreas Rost, Michael Schmidt, Gundula Schulze-Eldowy, Maria Sewcz, Michael Wesely, Anno Wilms, Ulrich Wüst, Werner Zellien, Harf Zimmermann, and Miron Zownir
