Laurenz Berges - Fotografien 1991–1995, Schirmer / Mosel, 2000, München

 

Hardcover, design by Claudia Ott and Laurenz Berges, text by Ulrich Bischoff.

The process of historical healing and forgetting moves at variable speeds. Material reality offering the least intransigence to the process. 0ffending statues erected by defeated conquerors can easily be removed. Buildings can be demolished. Laurenz Berges's publication Fotografien 1991-1995, reveals the more intimate spaces of the occupier. Spaces that could easily have been overlooked. The photographs are of the interiors of deserted Russian barracks in former East Germany. The book opens with a quote from a Russian soldier, "Russia is my home, Germany my Paradise". (Paul Tebbs)
