Gerhard Ullmann's (1935-2012) interest lay is architecturally defined spaces. His photography was closely connected to his work as a free-lance journalist and architectural critic. The retrospective that the Art Foundation Poll is dedicating to the architect, photographer and author, barely two years after his death, shows work series dedicated to border lines, demolition and break-up, Berlin mythologies, contemporary architecture and areas of industry.
Ullmann created unique photo essays for catalogues, newspapers and magazines, using his own images and texts. He understood how to use these personal combinations to share striking impressions and views of the construction of Berlin's ICC, IBA 87 projects, and the always busy back yards of Berlin's Kreuzberg district.
