In its Düsseldorf showroom, Grisebach hosts a double exhibition uniting the two opposing perspectives of Michael Wolf und Seiichi Furuya on everyday life. Until April 1, 2016.
In this exhibition, Grisebach presents a juxtaposition of urban life from two unique perspectives. On show will be works by Michael Wolf from his highly regarded series 'Tokyo Compression' as well as a selection of works by Seiichi Furuya, who documented the former GDR, East Germany, a few years before the fall of the Berlin Wall.
The German photographer Michael Wolf, who moved to Hong Kong in 1994, has documented and continues to explore the individual’s existence in Asian metropoles. His impressive series 'Tokyo Compression' examines people coping with the daily problems of commuting, often at the verge of exhaustion.
The Japanese photographer Seiichi Furuya, who moved to East Germany in 1984 as an interpreter, documented the slowly declining GDR from a radically personal point of view, capturing the population’s situation in his images.
