Group Exhibition

»Berlin in the 1918/19 Revolution.
Photography, Film, Entertainment Culture«

Curated by Ludger Derenthal, Evelin Förster and Enno Kaufhold

The revolution in winter and spring 1918/19 was decided in the streets of Berlin. Berliners celebrated the abdication of the German Emperor with demonstrations in front of the Reichstag and the palace on November 9th, 1918, in the newspaper quarter in January 1919 barricades were erected by the Spartacists against approaching government troops, after fighting had ceased, a large funeral procession to the cemetery in Friedrichsfelde. Press photographers were omnipresent with their big plate cameras, taking shots of orators in the crowd, soldiers behind machine-guns, party posters in the National Assembly election campaign, and destroyed buildings. At the same time, everyday life in the city went on. People went to the numerous cinemas with their expanding repertoire of films, enjoyed themselves at revues and cabarets, and danced the two-step and the foxtrot. The exhibition in the Museum für Fotografie shows both a photographic visual history of the revolution in Berlin and a panorama of the entertainment culture of those months.
