TRANSITION – Group Exhibition Analogue Photography
Fotogalerie Friedrichshain and analogueNOW! are pleased to announce their first curatorial collaboration: an international group exhibition on the theme “Transition” that will open in September.
2. September to 28. October
If the notion of transition is inherent in all forms of life, our present days seem to be characterized by an acceleration of history, so that some transitions once only observable with the distance of time now seem to be perceptible on the scale of a human’s lifetime. This exhibition is intended as a moment of deceleration, a breath necessary to think about recent and ongoing transitions.

Heinz Staab – Living Archive
The exhibition features photographs of amateur photographer Heinz Staab from the 1960s to the 1990s. Staab’s Alzheimer’s illness led to his collection of camera and photographic equipment, as well as all his negatives, ending up as an estate in the hands of his daughter. Through the support of analogueNOW! in the administration of the estate, the idea of a charity exhibition was born. The goal of the exhibition is to raise funds for the Alzheimer Gesellschaft Berlin e.V. For this purpose we collaborted with Jochen Rohner, who made new darkroom prints from Staab’s negatives. The Exhibition is part of 48h Neukölln 2022.
