Photographer Joe Dilworth’s upcoming exhibition, “negative space”, documents the urban wasteland in and around Berlin through compelling black and white photographs of wartime memorabilia, found by a collector who scours Berlin from its forests to its building sites. These guns, helmets, military earphones and radios have been gathered and hidden in a secret basement somewhere in Berlin. Documenting these empty spaces and man-made objects poses intriguing questions about temporality and human existence - transience, decay, loss, memory, the past. The gallery will also be showing Dilworth’s series entitled “empty rooms”, which further examines the atmosphere and lasting meaning of abandoned, man-made spaces.
The opening will take place on Thursday, 12th September from 19:00 to 22:00. The show will run from 12th September to 10th October at Staatsgalerie Prenzlauer Berg in Berlin.
