Faces of work

Cooperation event with the German Museum of Technology Foundation

Smoking chimneys, people in aprons and overalls – The industrial heart of the country beat in Berlin. Günter Krawutschke, who worked as a photographer at the Berliner Verlag, knows the world of many small and large industrial companies in East Berlin and the GDR like no other. The 160 selected pictures provide unadorned and sometimes intimate insights into this long gone world. They show emotional moments and strong characters against the background of hard everyday work.

Welcoming speech:

Joachim Breuninger, Director of the German Museum of Technology, Berlin

Lecture and discussion:

Prof. Joseph Hoppe, Head of the Berlin Center for Industrial Culture, Berlin
Günter Krawutschke, photographer and designer, Blankenfelde near Berlin
Sören Marotz, head of exhibition DDR Museum, Berlin
