Ute and Werner Mahler present « Die seltsamen Tage » at Robert Morat Galerie
Ute and Werner Mahler are being honored this spring by Hamburg's Haus der Photographie that is showing a large retrospective exhibition titled Werkschau.
Ute Mahler (born 1949) and Werner Mahler (born 1950) have been key figures of photography in the former GDR. After the German reunification they co-founded the prestigious Ostkreuz photography agency and the Ostkreuz School of Photography in Berlin.
In spring 2011 the Robert Morat Gallery showed the first joint project of the married couple titled Monalisen der Vorstädte and is thrilled to now accompany the large institutional show with a presentation of the second joint body of work Die seltsamen Tage.

In their new joint exhibition, the 18 photographers of the OSTKREUZ agency tell stories about borders. They explore what borders mean to people and how people shape their lives along borders.
First of all, a border is not more than an imaginary line drawn to mark a difference. This ends here, something else starts over there. Most crossings occur smoothly, but once a barrier has been constructed, it can only be crossed at a border checkpoint. A barrier emphasizes differences via fences, walls, and ges...
A New View of Architectural Photography from the National Museums in BerlinThe Art Library is reopening its newly reconstructed Kaisersaal (Emperor's Hall) at the Museum of Photography with a show of hidden treasures of architectural photography from the collections of the National Museums. Nearly all of the individual museums have acquired since some 150 years photographs. The genre of architectural photography is especially prominent represented.

An impressive panorama of the most diverse architectural motifs unfolds, ranging from the beginnings of photography to today: to mention but a few, there are images of bamboo huts from the Ethnological Museum, of temples from the Egyptian Museum, of Indian mosques from the Museum of Asian A...
