Born in 1939, Barbara Klemm has been accompanying decades of contemporary history like almost no other German photographer. Her images not only illustrate key historical events and pivotal moments, but bring to life the atmospheres of the time periods she captured. Now the acclaimed artist has developed an extensive retrospective of her work for the Martin-Gropius-Bau, centred around five decades of her creative career.
Around 300 exhibits represent the entire spectrum of Klemm's work since 1968: from political events, student unrests and citizens' initiatives, to images of Germany as a divided, and as a re-unified country; from street scenes and pictures of everyday life in all corners of the world, to sensitive portraits of artists, musicians and writers.
