Grand Palais, Paris

November 10 - 13, 2016

Opening November 9, 2016



In the frame of Paris Photo 2016, Loock Galerie is pleased to present the works of two significant photographers of the former GDR: Sibylle Bergemann and York der Knoefel. Correlating these two artists from different generations of former East Germany, an interesting dialog arises which portrays the socio-political reality of the GDR. Next to fashion and portrait photographs by Sibylle Bergemann, Knoefel’s work Schlachthaus Berlin 1986 – 1988/ Slaughterhouse Berlin 1986 – 1988 is being shown in a smaller composition.
