With regards to the exhibition Berlin, 1945–2000: A Photographic Subject, children and teenagers will have the chance to explore what excites and interests them the most about Berlin and to create posters using a variety of printing techniques.
At once looking at the poster landscape in our immediate vicinity and considering the different ways one might see and experience Berlin, as presented by the exhibition, we will examine the socio-political issues of our city and present them creatively. Moreover, we will explore both materials and form using letterpress printing and learn about the history of letterpress and image printing.
The posters will be presented in the Reinbeckhallen and will invite discussions not only on how the poster landscape has changed over the years in Berlin, but also on what these particular posters can tell us about the city we live in.
