In Nazi Germany before and during the second world war, German-Jewish photographer Lore Krüger (1914-2009) survived emigration, resistance, arrest, concentration camps, persecution and eventual exile. Her camera was always with her. What she created are unique historical documents that are part intimate personal photographs, part commission work, social studies and abstract photographic experiments. Her remarkable images not only represent a profound insight into the lives of European intellectuals in exile, but also offer a rare, personal view of the political events of that time.
Through the fortuitous discovery of Krüger's photographic legacy, her experiences open up a new and tangible access to history. C/O Berlin is the first venue worldwide to present an extensive retrospective of Lore Krüger's work. The exhibition comprises of approximately 100 original black-and-white prints, along with further photographs, books and historical documents.
