FOTOGALERIE Friedrichshain presents the first European solo exhibition
by Meryl Meisler.
The New York-based photographer and longtime art teacher
is traveling to Berlin for the first time on the occasion of her 70th
birthday, thanks to support from the Checkpoint Charlie Foundation. Her
work from the 1970s and 1980s draws a sharp contrast between the
difficult social conditions on the streets of Brooklyn, New York and the
glamorous, excessive nightlife of the disco era.
The supporting program includes workshops for young people and a public
panel discussion with Berlin art teachers and cultural professionals.
