Ortszeit / Local Time
A poster exhibition by photographer Stefan Kappelkamm with photos from buildings, streets and squares in East Germany before and after the Fall of the Berlin Wall.
While travelling around East Germany in 1990 – after the fall of the Wall but before reunification – Stefan Koppelkamm found himself wanting to take photographs that would capture a state of affairs he assumed would never recur. The buildings, streets and squares he photographed often looked as though time had stood still, together conveying an idea of how Germany might have looked before the Second World War. Ten or twelve years later, Stefan Koppelkamm sought all these places out again and photographed them for a second time, from exactly the same viewpoints. Changes in the condition of the buildings and even in the most trivial minor features reflect the dramatic social and economic transformation that came about between the first and the second set of photographs.
The poster exhibit consists of 12 posters mounted on foam board.
