For the second time, Fotogalerie Friedrichshain shifts its focus on a selection of youth photography from Berlin schools and educational photo projects. Together with the participants, we create this 3-weeks group exhibition to showcase the potential and creativity of Berlin’s young talents and we aim to make it just as exiting as a solo exhibition by a renowned photographer.
Some of the series that will be part of this years’ exhibition:
“Spring Awakening” – Workshops with Sascha J. Bachmann and Clemens Menne about plants and animals in Berlin, Montessori Primary School Am Rohrgarten in Zehlendorf
Portraits with DIY-pinhole cameras – with Laure Gilquin, in collaboration with Gangway association and Youth Club Feuerwache Friedrichshsain
Cross sections of photography classes at Dathe-Gymnasium Friedrichshain and Kant-Gymnasium Lichtenberg

Call for Applications with current Berlin images from 2015

Group photo exhibition „One Day in Berlin 2017 – 30 years later“

3 August – 22 September 2017

In August 1987 Fotogalerie Friedrichshain presented an important group exhibition, “One Day in Berlin”, which constituted a rich visual portrait of our then divided city. Participating in the exhibition were such renowned photographers as Sybille Bergemann, Harald Hauswald, Barbara Koeppe, Eberhard Kloeppel and many more. The popularity was evident as long lines of visitors formed in front of the gallery, waiting to see the exhibition. Just two years later, the Wall fell and since then Berlin has undergone and continues to undergo dramatic changes. Fotogalerie Friedrichshain is again seeking photographers whose images capture the current Berlin and its most important issues.

Applications for entry will be accepted until June 15th 2017 for this group exhibition. Selected images will be published in the exhibition catalogue.
