Pictures from Kaliningrad

Königsberg / Kaliningrad / Kenig City The British bombing in August 1944 of the old East Prussian capital Königsberg, then one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, marked the beginning of its demise. Heavy fighting for the “Königsberg fortress” culminated in its capture by the Red Army on 9 April 1945, followed by days of unchecked atrocities against the remaining German population (approx. 100,000 of the original 380,000 inhabitants). The Soviets unleashed the full force of their vengeance. Then: famine and cholera. Some 25,000 Germans survived. Königsberg became Soviet, but really Russian. There were celebrations and expulsions, there was destruction and demolition, planning and reconstruction. Today, after being off limits for almost 50 years and just 600 kilometres from Berlin, but 1,200 kilometres from Moscow, many Kaliningraders feel closer to the West than to Russia. By a stroke of coincidence or irony, the years 2005/2006 marked a double anniversary: The old Hanseatic City and capital Königsberg, Prussia turned 750.

Exhibition “The city from below” at the gallery Einstellungsraum/Hamburg

20 June 2015 – The opening address “Cacophony of a Metropolis” by art historian and author Dr. Thomas Piesbergen at the opening of the current exhibition “The city from below” is available to read here. Dr. Piesbergen gave the opening address at Andreas Bromba’s current exhibition at the gallery Einstellungsraum in Hamburg on 16 June 2015. The photographic concept is one of Andreas Bromba’s oldest and most important and is presented here for the first time in an art historical context. But please read for yourself!   The exhibition is being held in the context of Einstellungsraum’s theme for this year, which is taken from a line by Matthias Claudius: “Where there is noise in the streets, there proceed on your way” (from a letter to his son Johannes). Andreas Bromba presents quiet works exploring the phenomenon of soundlessness in modern cityscapes through the medium of photography.
