Photographic Rapprochement of Architectural Inheritance from the Third Reich

Text by GŁnter Kunert, Werner Duth.
How does twenty-first-century Germany deal with the remaining Fascist architecture of the 1930s and 1940s? Between 2001 and 2006, the German photographer Ralf Meyer created a collection of 130 photographs, taken at 32 locations across the country. The photographs were not intended to be mere reproductions of facades; instead, they were meant to investigate how German citizens deal with the results of the overwhelming historical architecture that surrounds them. Each one of the buildings Meyer sought out was constructed for an ideological purpose: can these implicit messages still be detected in the architecture? What is life like in and around these buildings, now that so much has changed?
