Annette Hauschild – Last Days of Disco (signed)


Hatje Cantz – 2018

Stories in black and white: The great photographer from the agency Ostkreuz shows West Berlin in the raw.

She is a storyteller—one who gets close to things and opens up to people; one who discovers places that enchant her, and as a result, the places that enchant her viewers. Ever since Annette Hauschild (b. in Giessen) moved to Berlin to study at the Lette-Verein, the capital has often been a theme for her photojournalism and for her personal projects. Berlin Stories #4 compiles three black-and-white series produced in Berlin. Both Golden West, photographed in the area around the Bahnhof Zoologischer Garten, and M29, named after the bus line that goes across the city, deal with the changes in society that occurred after the fall of the Iron Curtain, as well as with old and new West Berlin. They are about yearning and reality and are supplemented with brief texts. Finally, Last Days of Disco lures us into a bar in Wedding, an area of West Berlin where time seems to stand still.
