VISUAL ARTS: TOTALLY EAST

Photos by Harald Hauswald
Text/Curation by Stefan Wolle

Remembering the 30th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall, this photography exhibition powerfully portrays everyday situations in the GDR. Harald Hauswald images feature run-down façades, punks and ordinary workers, he simply wanted to document everyday life — without knowing that the Berlin Wall would one day come down.
This exhibition gives a unique view into East German life using QR codes that link to short video interviews on YouTube, in which the photographer reports on how and in what context the each photo was taken.

H.E. Deike Potzel, Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany in Dublin, will formally open the exhibition as part of Culture Night celebrations on 20th September.

This exhibition is supported by the German Embassy.
