The divided Berlin in the 1970s, a cityscape full of war ruins and contrasts. The whole of Europe is divided into political blocs - that are now slowly starting to move. Siebrand Rehberg's photographs are powerful documents of a time of social and political transformations: Willy Brandt and Erich Honecker, bearers of political hope in West and East. The glamor of the 'Window display of the West', the Kurfürstendamm. The tristesse of life in Kreuzberg. The military stiffness of the jubilation parade for the 25th anniversary of the GDR. The X Youth and Students World Games, which went down in history as 'red Woodstock'.
