Ostzeit Summary

Ostzeit: Geschichten aus einem vergangenen Land by OSTKREUZ Agentur der Fotografen

Twenty years after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Ostzeit presents photo series by the best chroniclers of the German Democratic Republic, culled from the first-class inventory of the Ostkreuz Agency. Founded on the concept of authorship in 1990 by photographers fromBerlin and Leipzig, the agency was named after a Berlin train station. Anyone wanting to enter East Germany had to pass through this station.Ostzeit offers sensitive pictures of the GDR and its people: Sibylle Bergemann's unrivaled, humane photographs of the legendary Berlin dance hall Clarchens Ballhaus. Werner Mahler's long-term study of Bad Berka in Thuringia. Harald Hauswald's photographic essay on the drabness and hidden comedy of everyday life in the GDR. Ute Mahler's revealing photos of the May Day Parade in Berlin in 1980. French photographer Maurice Weiss's documentation of the final hours before the collapse of the Wall and reunification. And last, but not least, Bergemann's emblematic images of the creation of the Marx-Engels monument, which, ironically, are now part of the German Parliament's art collection. Exhibition schedule: Haus der Kulturen, Berlin August 13- September 13, 2009
