In Eastern Germany

In Eastern Germany (2006) digital edition is a photograph by Wim Wenders that depicts an austere looking wall, blank, impersonal and anonymous - a boarded window conveys a sense of quiet neglect, underlined by the muted colour palette of beige and grey. The scene is eerily still - at odds with the anti-capitalist graffiti scrawled across the centre.

Primarily known for his films such as Wings of Desire, Pina and The Salt of the Earth, a portrait of the Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado, Wenders acknowledges that “Photographic work is the other half of my life”. For decades he has created photographic oeuvre quite independent of his filmic work: photographs of lonely, at times somewhat bizarre places and landscapes, of settings that have their own story.

In Eastern Germany is one of two editions that have been released in partnership with the Museum Kunstpalast in Düsseldorf in celebration of the artists’ 70th birthday. The editions are presented as part of the retrospective exhibition 4 Real & True 2 / Wim Wenders. Landscapes. Photographs. at the museum in 2015.
