Description

Founded 40 years ago, the formerly famous Berlin Werkstatt für Photographie located at the Volkshochschule Kreuzberg, closed its doors after only 10 years and slowly sank into oblivion. During this decade it was one of the most important schools for photography in Germany.

On the occasion of this year’s anniversary of both the opening and closing of the institution, the Werkstatt’s direct successor at the Volkshochschule (today’s Photocentrum am Wassertor) presents the ambitious project: “Changing Images – Photography after the Werkstatt für Photographie“. It is both a survey of the past and a presentation of current positions on contemporary photography by the 13 participating male and female photographers. The project was developed under the artistic leadership of Prof. Peter Fischer-Piel.

The exhibition in Studio 1 of the Bethanien art center is accompanied by a catalogue, released by zimmerverlagberlin, showing the 13 artistic positions on the issue „Changing Images“. Included in the catalogue are articles by Dr. Enno Kaufhold and Prof. Peter Fischer-Piel as well as interviews with Thomas Leuner and Ursula Kelm. Numerous photographs showing the inside life of the Werkstatt für Photographie, former exhibition posters and documents concerning the history of photographic training and education in Berlin illustrate the catalogue.

The exhibition presents works by
Wolf Abraham, Maren Baldeweg, Aline Calmet, Stefan Doß, Peter Fischer-Piel, Bernd Große, Ania Kaszot, Torsten Kröger, Heike Reichenstein, Uwe Schumacher, Frank Seeger, Kirsten Steiner, Dieter Titz
