FestivalExhibitionTalk & Discussion

The well-known photographers of the former GDR, such as Sibylle Bergemann, Harald Hauswald and Evelyn Richter, are known through numerous exhibitions and book publications. However, the work of Uwe Steinberg, who died at an early age, has remained undiscovered until now. The Forum für Fotografie is showing a comprehensive exhibition of the photographer's work. Klaus Honnef notes: "To apostrophize the photographer Uwe Steinberg as a chronicler is inadequate to the extent that the term seems to neglect the special aesthetic qualities of his images."
