The European Month of Photography, Germany’s largest photography festival currently taking place in Berlin, offers a rich and varied look into the history of one of Europe’s most fascinating cities.
Over 120 museums, cultural institutions, galleries, project spaces, embassies and photography schools across the capital are hosting a range of events. This year, with a special focus on both Berlin and black and white photography, highlights include Rainer König’s depictions of Berlin architecture and ruins at the Willy-Brandt-Haus, an exploration of three fascinating decades of subcultures in “Wild Wild Berlin” at Galerie Zwitschermaschine on Potsdamer Straße and a dazzling peek at theatre life behind the curtain, as captured by journalist Eva Kremlin on display at Mitte’s Centrum Judaicum.
The European Month of Photography runs through October 31, 2016 throughout Berlin, with many of the exhibitions extending into 2017. Please see website for more details.
