Panel discussion · The beautiful image

Global photo platforms have established themselves as a source of images for all types of media. In terms of content, these image archives are something between stock photography and author photography. Quality, aesthetics and price seem coherent - sales have become professionalized and demand is growing.

The Ostkreuz - Verein für Fotografie e.V. joins forces with Rote Salon of Volksbühne am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz to hold a panel discussion about this topic. The event aims to put the – often narrowly led – discussion into a broader context.

Introduction: Tibor Bogun (Art Director and Photo Editor, Berlin)

Moderation: Miriam Zlobinski (Photo Editor, Berlin)

Panelists: Karen Fromm (Professor of the photojournalism class, Hochschule Hannover); Andreas Herzau (photographer, lecturer and photo critic, Hamburg); Michael Pfister (head of the photodepartment of ZEIT Online, Berlin) and Gen Sadakane (Creative Director and Co Founder of EyeEm, Berlin).

Tickets 8,- Euro/ 6,- Euro (discount).

The panel discussion is on Tuesday, April 25th 2017 at 8 pm and will be conducted in German.

Harald Hauswald Book Release

© Harald Hauswald

East Berlin in the 1980s – Ostkreuz photographer Harald Hauswald, known as a flâneur, was strolling through the city along with his ever ready camera to photograph behind the scenes of the slowly collapsing state. Initially he shot in black & white, and from 1986 on, he had also also begun shooting in colour. These photographs recored both the colorfull awaking of a young generation as well as the last moments of a perishing society and are now being published at Lehmstedt publishing house under the titel „Harald Hauswald – Goodby Ostberlin“.

On 27 September 2016 the publishing House Lehmstedt invites everyone to join the book release of Harald Hauswald’s „Goodbye Ostberlin“ and Christian Schulz’s „Die wilden Achtziger – Fotografien aus Westberlin“ at the restaurant Riogrande.
Both photographers will be present and will sign their books following a talk with the publisher Mark Lehmstedt.
