Exhibition | Shifting Perspectives at ZKR Berlin
21 October 2017 – 08 April 2018
Opening: Friday, 20 October 2017, 7 pm
The exhibition Shifting Perspectives focuses on the decaying landscapes and urban structures of East Germany, from the GDR and the post-reunification era to the present. It gathers predominantly photographic and video work of 22 selected artists, including Arno Fischer, Seiichi Furuya, Stephanie Steinkopf, Clemens von Wedemeyer and Tobias Zielony. Their work depicts examples of desolate architecture and cities in transformation, tells residents’ stories, and studies the evolution of rural environments. ZKR Director Katja Aßmann sheds light on the exhibition: “Public space, whether urban or rural, is subject to constant changes due to political, economic and social conditions. The works featured in Shifting Perspectives powerfully convey the significance of public spaces in the formation of identity, and tangibly communicate the gradual changes in the former GDR states over the course of the reunification between East and West Germany.” Shifting Perspectives gathers long-term subjective studies, personal accounts and photographic snapshots that hint at imminent change or already bear traces of socio-political upheaval.

Anne Heinlein, Schmerbach, 2016
First documented in an official record: 1562, Destroyed: 1974
Exhibition | „Wüstungen”, RaumSechs, Düsseldorf
„Wüstungen” is a collaboration between Anne Heinlein and Göran Gnaudschun. From 1952 to 1988, the authorities razed more than a hundred villages, farms, hamlets, and homesteads on East German territory near the border with West Germany. The structures were in the way of a clear field of fire, difficult to guard, or simply too close to the line of demarcation. The people who lived there were forcibly resettled, forever losing their homes. Gnaudschun und Heinlein traveled to these localities to take photographs and write; they interviewed contemporary witnesses and asked them to see their photo albums. They also spent a lot of time in the archives of the Stasi, the border troops, and the West German border police. The photographs, maps, and documents they gathered are an integral component of the book, ranging freely across different historical strata. The deliberately unscholarly use of the documentary material highlights how abstract grand schemes always also impact individuals; some people contrive these plans and implement them while others suffer the consequences. Images and texts examine the passage of time, the way people live with their memories, and the significance of flight and expulsion as repercussions of the inner German border.
