Klassentreffen Ost-Berlin

Galerie Neurotitan

Analog graffiti photography of East Berlin in the 90s. 

Just imagine: You are riding the S-Bahn through Berlin. The ticket costs only 10 cents and the walls are monotonously grey. Just grey. This is how East Berlin looked until the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.

Neurotitan gallery presents a comprehensive exhibition of works on graffiti culture in East Berlin from its beginnings in the 1980s in the GDR to the beginning of the 21st century in reunified Germany. The retrospective »Klassentreffen Ost-Berlin« shows documents of the subculture in rare photographs, a video installation and a Media Wall. In cooperation with the CBS Crew, the reconstruction of a prototypical East German bedsit of graffiti artists in the 1990s will be on display. The aim of the exhibition is to close a gap in the documentation of the Berlin graffiti scene from the years before the fall of the Berlin Wall to the time after the reunion.

The exhibition is curated by Niko Dierchen and is organized in cooperation with THE ART UNION e.V.

We would be very happy about donations that help us, as a non-profit organization to get through this difficult time.
