Common Ground

German Photographic Cultures Across the Iron Curtain

Sarah E James

From 1955, when Edward Steichen’s touring exhibition The Family of Man opened in West Berlin, and Bertolt Brecht’s Kriegsfibel (‘War Primer’) was published in the East, to the 1980s, this study examines five documentary projects by photographers Karl Pawek, Evelyn Richter, Rudolf Schäfer, Bernd and Hilda Becher and Michael Schmidt, looking at their work in relation to a world transformed by the Holocaust and the ideological, cultural and technological impact of the Cold War.
