Sibylle Bergemann: Photographs 1966–2010
Text by Susanne Altmann, Bertram Kaschek, Anne Pfautsch, Katia Reich, Jan Wenzel, Frieda von Wild, Lily von Wild.
Bergemann chronicled the changing face of postwar Germany in numerous classic portraiture series for Die Zeit and the New York Times Magazine
In a career spanning more than four decades, Berlin-born photographer Sibylle Bergemann (1941–2010) created an extraordinary oeuvre ranging from fashion and portrait photographs to literary reportage and other series. In the GDR, Bergemann worked both freelance and for various art and culture magazines. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, she cofounded the photographer’s agency Ostkreuz and worked for leading German as well as international magazines such as GEO, Die Zeit, Stern and the New York Times Magazine. This catalog, accompanying the exhibition at Berlinische Galerie, approaches the unique visual universe of one Germany’s most famous photographers on several narrative levels. Including more than 200 photographs from the museum’s own collection as well as from the photographer’s estate, it shows selected images from her early work for the first time.
PRAISE AND REVIEWS
Berlin, fixed name of a morphing entity, is the leitmotif of Bergemann’s oeuvre...It’s riddled with Ostalgie—nostalgia for the former East—and awareness of how dour constraint might amplify evanescent pleasure.
