Photo Exhibition "Work and Everyday Life 1951-1992"

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 photo series by Melis (born in 1940 in Berlin) and titled "In einem stillen Land" (In a Quiet Country) depicts life in socialist East Germany between 1965 and 1989. Vogel (born 1932) shows life in West Germany's industrial heartland, the Ruhrgebiet, with contrast-rich monochrome pictures, which carefully avoid any romanticism of the realities of working-class life. Finally Dutchman Roemers (born in 1962 in Oldehove, Holland) is present with a series showing the final days of Trabant production in Eisenach between 1990 and 1992.

More information (in German) is available at the Willy-Brandt-Haus website.

Open daily except Monday, noon - 6pm at the Willy-Brandt-Haus ( Wilhelmstraße 140, 10963 Berlin). Closest station: Hallesches Tor (U1, U6).
