Group Exhibition

»B1 – a street through Berlin«

Aenne Burghardt, Ekkehart Keintzel, André Kirchner, Andreas Muhs, Peter Oehlmann, Cordia Schlegelmilch, Jörg Schmiedekind, Wolf Jobst Siedler, Peter Thieme, Volker Wartmann, Arnd Weider, Jochen Wermann

The B1 main road connects numerous places of historical significance that shape the cityscape and make German history of the 20th century readable and tangible: November Revolution, Weimar Republic, Nazi period, war and post-war, Berlin’s division and reunion after the fall of the Wall and German reunification. The contradictory history of this city, its ruptures and changes manifest themselves in the urban spaces and architecture found along the B1, which can be experienced and understood like a sequence of exhibits.

Twelve photographers show their personal perceptions and conceptions of these urban spaces, which are anchored in the present but never allow their history to be forgotten.

The Berlin Round Table on Urban Photography, which now brings together fourteen photographers on a regular basis, works on common photographic themes in addition to discussion and exchange.
In 2016 the discussion about the B1 began. A section of this traffic route, which originally stretched from Königsberg to Aachen, passes through Berlin, from Mahlsdorf in the east of the city to the Glienicke Bridge in the southwest.

Photographs by Aenne Burghardt, Ekkehart Keintzel, André Kirchner, Andreas Muhs, Peter Oehlmann, Cordia Schlegelmilch, Jörg Schmiedekind, Wolf Jobst Siedler, Peter Thieme, Volker Wartmann, Arnd Weider and Jochen Wermann. 2016 to 2020.
