One thing you won't find in the works of Roger Melis, Martin Roemers and Walter Vogel are clichés. Their works, depicting different aspects of working life in the post-war Germanies, go on show today at the Willy-Brandt-Haus, headquarters of Germany's Social Democratic Party (SPD), under the title "Arbeit und Alltag 1951-1992" ("Work and Everyday Life 1951-1992")

The GDR is fast disappearing from Berlin's cityscape. If you want to get an impression of what East Berlin looked like before the Wall came down, check out the upcoming exhibition "East Berlin - The Last Decade" (German title: Berlin-Ost. Das letzte Jahrzehnt) at the Linden-Center out in Hohenschönhausen showing photos of everyday life between 1979 and 1989 by Thomas Uhlemann.

New York, stark black and white street photography: the trademarks of photographer Arthur Fellig (1899 - 1968), commonly known by his pseudonym "Weegee". Beginning on Saturday 24th February (vernissage: 23rd February, 7pm) an exhibition at gallery C|O Berlin in the Postfuhramt (Oranienburger Straße) will show 217 photographs by Fellig from the Berinson Collection as well as documentary videos about the photographer and his work.

Fellig's nickname is said to derive from "Ouija" due to his seemingly uncanny knack of arriving at incident scenes just minutes after they occurred. This wasn't through some paranormal abilty though - he was the only New York newspaper reporter who was allowed to have a portable police-band shortwave radio.
