The show at Kommunale Galerie Berlin reviews Photoplatz in the legendary Hotel Bogota 10 years after its closure.

In the period from 2006 to 2013, a total of 73 exhibitions took place at Photoplatz. Artists such as Gerhard Kassner and Robert Lebeck, Göran Gnaudschun and Ina Schröder, Antoine D`Agata and Amélie Losier have exhibited here. In the temporary situation of a hotel stay, the photographs offered guests moments of pause, of letting themselves be touched, of conversation. The photo space opened up a space for critical discussion.

Over the years, Joachim Rissmann, curator of the exhibition and former manager of the hotel, has built up a collection of photographs from the exhibitions. Alongside these photographs, invitation cards and photographs taken at the hotel itself provide information about the Photoplatz era.

An exhibition in the framework of the European Month of Photography 2023.
