The Berlinische Galerie, Berlin’s Museum of Modern Art, Photography and Architecture, has posted the video Berlinische Galerie: The Shuttered Society. Art Photography in the GDR 1949-1989 on its YouTube channel.

As stated in the ‘About’ section of the video on YouTube:

The Berlinische Galerie is to stage the world’s first comprehensive exhibition of art photography in the GDR. Twenty years after the Wall, “The Shuttered Society” identifies traditions and trends while illustrating shifts in visual idiom and theme.

I think it’s great that this video has been posted because it acts an advert, a companion to the exhibition and an opportunity for those unable to visit Berlin or the gallery to see some interesting and important photographs.

The exhibition runs until 28 January 2013.  Admission is €8.  For further details see the Berlinische Galerie website.

Tip: Whilst no longer an option for this particular exhibition, admission to the Berlinische Galerie is half price on the first Monday of each month.
