Harald Hauswald’s images capture the monotony and slowness of life in East Germany, and bear witness to an insular and isolated world shortly before its downfall. In contrast to the West’s prevalent images of the GDR as a country defined by the socialist state and the Free German Youth organization, by the Berlin Wall and barbed wire, by marches and military parades, Harald Hauswald (b. 1954) offers penetrating, singular insights into everyday life under socialism, in particular showing the evolving cityscape of East Berlin and the activities of opposition groups, artists, and youth subcultures.

Rather than simply documenting coexisting lives in East Germany, Hauswald’s photographs make visible memories of a divided Germany’s history as well as the challenges of transitioning to a new political system in reunified Germany.

Curated by Felix Hoffmann together with Ute Mahler and Laura Benz, the exhibition Harald Hauswald . Voll das Leben! includes some 250 photographs taken between the late 1970s and the mid-1990s. It is the first major retrospective of Hauswald, one of the founding members of the Berlin photographer-run agency OSTKREUZ.
