Renate von Mangoldt: Berlin Revisited. ZeitSprünge 1972–1987 / 2021–2023 – Museum für Fotografie| 28.06-01.09.2024

Editors’ Choice

The exhibition brings together photographic leaps through time in gripping pairings full of humour and melancholy. The black-and-white photographs from West Berlin in the 1970s and 80s are juxtaposed with colour photographs from 2021 to 2023 in the reunified city. It is street photography in the best sense of the word, taken in the midst of crowds of passers-by, changing moments and motifs. Sometimes actually photographed anew in one and the same place, mostly freely improvising on a black and white theme. But people are always at the centre of Renate von Mangoldt’s photographs, who has made a name for herself primarily as a portrait photographer of writers.

“Because the photos relate to each other in many ways. Not only in terms of content and location, but also formally. Only together do they unfold their power. They tell of time and tell a story themselves. How the world has changed, how time has changed, how the city has changed, how people have changed!” (Renate von Mangoldt)

Renate von Mangoldt, born in Berlin in 1940, lived in Erlangen in the 1950s. From 1961 to 1963 she attended the Bavarian State School of Photography in Munich. Since 1964 she has worked as a photographer at the Literary Colloquium Berlin. Her work has been published many times, shown in exhibitions and is represented in numerous public and private collections.

Berlin and its history, interpreted by photographers, is at the centre of this summer’s presentations at the Museum für Fotografie. With “Michael Wesely. Berlin 1860-2023”, another exhibition will be shown in the Kaisersaal, which takes a look at the changes in the city over the last few decades using historical photographs.
