The Null Device
East Germany, 1990
Der Spiegel has some
evocative photographs from East Germany
, taken by West German photographer Karlheinz Jardner in 1990, not long after the wall came down. It includes shots of
room interiors frozen in the perpetual 1970s of the DDR
dilapidated provincial cities with Trabants
luxury hotels reserved for the Communist Party elite
dilapidated seaside resorts
cheerful urchins with piles of coal
uninspiring consumer goods
symphonies of grey
; some glimpses of a parallel world, just before it disappeared.
is a Fortean Times piece on "The Ghosts of East Berlin".
