Berlin-Hohenschönhausen detention centre and prison hospital

Ruth Stoltenberg

Ruth Stoltenberg’s photographs depict the former Stasi prison in Berlin-Hohenschönhausen and its accompanying prison hospital from a personal perspective. These two places of terror and violence, along with her intense conversations with formerly incarcerated witnesses, moved the photographer so profoundly that a deeply sensitive photographic project was able to develop as a result. In her images, Stoltenberg allows the spaces and objects themselves to speak about the horror that took place there.

Ruth Stoltenberg received her photographic training at the Neue Schule für Fotografie in Berlin as well as at the Lichtblick School in Cologne, after previously working as a television editor. The artist’s work primarily focuses on, and sees her intensively engaging with, places that have been shaped, abandoned or left in a state of upheaval by history.
