What would Berlin be without the Spree? On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Greater Berlin, Götz Lemberg will erect a monument to the Spree at three prominent locations. The Spree will be shown in its entire length on its way through the capital.
Götz Lemberg captures the Spree every 333 meters with a three-part "cut". Here he chooses different perspectives: at the level of the water surface and from the middle of the river, both banks are shown. This creates the impression of a panorama of the 43-kilometer-long course of the Spree, from its entrance to Berlin in Lake Dämeritz to its mouth into the Havel.
The project shows the value the Spree still has today for Berlin as a source of life. With the play of unusual perspectives, breaks in perception, and associative reconnections, Götz Lemberg explores the course of the river and at the same time the visual dimensions of photography. Thus the compressed journey becomes a journey past factories and villas, harbours and monuments, wastelands and idylls, through landscape and history, through time and space.
