Barbara Klemm – Fotografien / Photographs
The catalogue for a retrospective of German photojournalist Barbara Klemm at the Martin Gropius Bau in Berlin. Her decorated career spanned more than four decades and covered many of the most important events in the nation’s recent history, as well as numerous defining moments in international affairs: Willy Brandt’s talks with Leonid Brezhnev in 1973, Portugal’s Carnation Revolution, Václav Havel at Prague Castle in 1990, and of course German reunification. Klemm’s oeuvre has always focused on people, and the portrait is seen as her greatest passion. This fascinating overview of her work takes us across five continents, from Havana to Gaza, Kolkata and beyond.
