Opening: Kriegskinder

1. February 2018


A warm invitation to the opening of the exhibition Kriegskinder by Frederike Helwig and Anne Waak on Thursday, 1. February 2018, at 7 pm.

Introduction: Nadine Barth (Consulting Editor for Photography Art Books at Hatje Cantz Verlag) in discussion with Frederike Helwig (photographer) and Anne Waak (author).

“What did my parents experience when they were as old as my children are today? What made them what they are today?” Kriegskinder shows portrait photos of a generation whose memories will soon vanish. Those who grew up during World War II look back and talk – some of them for the first time ever – about what marked them: bombs, flight, fear, hunger, illness and death, as well as the speachlessness of the post-war era.

Here you find more information about the exhibition.
