east side stories
Kicken Berlin starts off its 2010 program with a look at the past, presenting a series of photographs under the title “East Side Stories: German Photographs 1950s-1980s.” Sourcing images from a selection of photographers who were prolific during the time of the GDR (many of whom are now represented by Ostkreuz), this exhibition presents a more personal glimpse at a past life, with each photographer lending a more personal, humanistic touch to the images, steering away from an idealistic representation of society that was more commonly accepted under GDR rule.
Among the photographers on show are Ursula Arnold, Sibylle Bergemann, Arno Fischer, Ute und Werner Mahler, Roger Melis, Helga Paris, Evelyn Richter and Gundula Schulze Eldowy.
A separate exhibition space highlights the work of noted ‘50s fashion photographer F.C. Grundlach.
