The German Consulate General Presents:
“Times of Change”
This exhibition brings together images taken before and after the fall of the Wall. These are black-and-white photographs of the two parts of Berlin before, during and after the events of 1989, which irrevocably changed the political geography of Berlin and Germany and the geopolitical balance of the Cold War period.
The exhibition is complemented by a number of colour photographs showing the Wall and some of the Events that have shaped Berlin’s history.
