35 years ago in 1985, FOTOGALERIE Friedrichshain opened its doors next to Warschauer Brigde to become the first and only official Gallery for Photography of the German Democratic Republic (GDR). Focussing on courageous photography and the individual in society from the beginning, FOTOGALERIE survived both the Fall of the Berlin Wall and the loss of the communal status meaning the end of public funding. Since then, it is run by the Kulturring in Berlin association.

We are opening our archives for the anniversary exhibition, aiming to bring 35 years of gallery history to life and also consider the present and future by showcasing the work of young talents.

Including works of Tina Modotti, Helga Paris, Danila Tkachenko, Ann Christine Jansson, Peter Leske, Romualdas Požerskis, Harald Hauswald, Cem Turgay, Julia Runge, Uli Kaufmann, Anna Szkoda, and many more…
