Rüdiger Frigge, born in 1970, has been taking photographs for almost 40 years. He has repeatedly photographed his long-time hometown of Potsdam. The first comprehensive photo collections were created in the late 1980s/early 1990s and show Potsdam's early development after the fall of the Wall in 1989.



But the old “GDR-Potsdam” also had its charm in many places. This resulted in recordings that are now historical and a reminder of bygone times. In particular, the severely run-down city center at the end of the 1980s - here Potsdam is representative of all the cities of the former GDR - demonstrated in an absurd way the way historical buildings were treated at the time.

Always fascinated by the subsequent development of Potsdam, the photographer returned to selected locations and documented the changes.

The exhibition can be seen during the church's opening hours in the exhibition room in the lower church.
