Guided tour with photographer Rudi Meisel - exhibition tour @C/O

In Berlin, 29.08.2015 16:001 - 01.01.1970 1:001

Germany at the end of the 1970s. The post-war period has been overcome, the economic miracle has been accomplished and the division into West and East has finally been completed. Yet despite the wall and the barbed wire, the FRG and GDR are in fact extraordinarily similar in terms of their petit bourgeois nature, their uniformity, architecture and habituality. Conservative comfort, inhospitable residential developments, neighbourly chit-chat, boozy get-togethers in bars, youth rebellion, entertaining folk festivals, streets in disrepair – over a period of eleven years, the West German photographer Rudi Meisel captured the everyday life of the common people on both sides.

5 euros plus admission fee 10/ 5 euros . No registration in advance.
