The Willy-Brandt-Haus cultural centre in Berlin currently dedicates three showcases to projects relating to the United Kingdom.
With her spectacular series 48 Hours Blackpool, Russian-American photographer Benita Suchodrev presents a sociocultural study of the outmoded British seaside resort. Her black and white images are intense and rich with authenticity, showing scenes she encountered on the famous Blackpool Promenade over the course of two summer days.
At the same time, the venue presents the showcase England 76-81 by Tish Murtha, a British social documentary photographer who passed away in 2013 at just 56. Her work, which predominantly revolved around marginalised and working-class communities in England’s North-East, is still largely undiscovered within Germany.
And finally, the group exhibition Distant Islands. Photographs on Brexit shows the work of eight students and graduates of Berlin’s Ostkreuz School of Photography, who use highly individual and diverse approaches to address the complexities and developments surrounding Brexit.
