Duration of Exhibition
02.10. – 28.11.2010

We invited eight photographers to have a look around in Realstadt. They transformed an exhibition that neither depicts nor illustrates reality, but embodies it in unmistakable style into an illustrated narrative. What is surprising is the matter-of-fact tone in which all these pictures speak of the local conditions, plans and wishes of German cities, while at the same time appearing to be part of that autonomous, coherent urban reality that Realstadt called into being for two months at Kraftwerk Mitte.
Publication is scheduled for 13 December 2010.
