The Zeit­geist of the ‘70s and ’80

Where Berlin - - MUSEUMS & GALLERIES -

With pho­tog­ra­phers rang­ing from the un­known to renown, from within Berlin's Wed­ding neigh­bor­hood to Wy­oming, Kreuzberg Amerika at C/O Berlin (this page) show­cases some of the most starkly telling pho­to­graphs of the 1970s and 1980s taken by for­mer mem­bers of Ger­many's fa­mous Werk­statt für Fo­tografie. This acad­emy pro­vided free ed­u­ca­tion in doc­u­men­tary pho­tog­ra­phy and pro­moted free ex­pres­sion be­yond aca­demic con­straints, even­tu­ally de­vel­op­ing a spe­cial artis­tic di­a­logue be­tween am­a­teurs and pro­fes­sion­als. In­vest­ing in artis­tic con­nec­tions be­tween the two sides of the At­lantic, the Werk­statt man­aged to cap­ture the zeit­geist of its era in its full beauty, glory, and ug­li­ness. Un­til 12 Feb.
