Berlin has changed dramatically since the fall of the Berlin Wall. Society’s structure has been altered, as have the city’s temperament and architectural design. Juxtapositions, transitions, façades, and Doppelgängers both imagined and real exist in the city’s spaces, people, and culture. Photographers and other artists have contributed to this transformation, to this new way that Berlin perceives itself and is perceived by others. The city is a magnet for artists from around the world, including many from former Eastern Bloc countries. Eleven modern-day artists who live and work in Berlin express this new city through private and public images. Matthias Harder, Helmut Newton Foundation, Berlin curated the exhibit.
