The Zeitgeist of the ‘70s and ’80
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.
