Deutsches Haus at NYU presents “Pieces of Berlin 2019–2023,” an exhibition by the photographer Florian Reischauer. For over 15 years, Florian Reischauer has been capturing the multifaceted transformation of Berlin, focusing not only on the city's architecture, but also its inhabitants and their everyday lives. In his third book in the "Pieces of Berlin" series, Reischauer once again wanders the city streets, capturing his encounters – both photographically and in interviews – with urban dwellers from many walks of life. Each vignette gives us insight into their lived realities, drawing their voices and faces decisively out of the urban anonymity of the Berlin metropolis and painting a portrait of a city and its inhabitants navigating the intricacies of the COVID-19 pandemic, gentrification, the rising cost of living, and ever-shifting demographics.
The exhibition opening will be held on February 29, from 6 to 8 PM, and include a conversation between the photographer Florian Reischauer and Sarah Girner. The exhibition will remain on view at Deutsches Haus at NYU through March 29. Please RSVP for in-person attendance here.
