Graphic Arts in East Berlin

The fifth presentation in the Photo-Graphic Cabinet offers a cross-section of artistic perspectives in East Berlin from the late 1940s to the end of the GDR in 1990.

The content ranges from the optimistic spirit associated with the founding of the Republic to the often critical metropolitan melancholy of the 1970s and 80s and the alternative scenes that existed in niches even during the most repressive days of the Wall. Realistic graphics, mostly figurative/expressive, hang alongside abstract works.

This presentation in the permanent exhibition BerlinZEIT at the Märkisches Museum is a supplement to the current special exhibition East Berlin. Half a Capital in the Ephraim-Palais Museum.
