The wrinkles of the city

wrinkles of the city

While I out and about in Prenzlauer Berg I spotted my first black-and-white portrait photograph by the french artist JR within the context of his project The Wrinkles of the City. He has placed the portraits on over 15 buildings in Berlin. JR is portraying here older people who have lived through the changes and upheavals of their city. Their individual life stories and what they have gone through show up in their facial features just as Berlin’s history does on the buildings where JR posts up the posters. One down, at least fourteen to go. The exhibition can be seen until the 25.5. at the Galerie Henrik Springmann in Gipsstrasse 4, Berlin.

JR seen in Prenzlauer Allee, Berlin – May 2013

Zufälliger- und glücklicherweise habe ich gestern im Prenzlauer Berg das erste von vierzehn schwarz – weiß Portraits von dem französischen Künstler JR gesehen, die er innerhalb des Projektes The Wrinkles of the City in Berlin an veschiedene Häuserwände geklebt hat. JR potraitiert hier ältere Leute, die die ganzen Veränderungen und Erneuerung der Stadt Berlin erlebt haben. Ihre individuelle Geschichte verbindet sich hier mit der Geschichte der Stadt, den Häusern, an denen ihre Portraits hängen. Eines habe ich schon gesehen, mindestes vierzehn fehlen mir noch. Die Ausstellung zum Projekt ist noch bis zum 25.5. in der Galerie Henrik Springmann in Gipsstrasse 4, Berlin zu sehen.
