Zille was a pioneer of social documentary photography and the world’s first street photographer. Most famous for recording Berlin’s vibrancy at the beginning of the 20th century, he captured cultural idiosyncrasies like snapshots of Wild West shows as popular attractions on European fairgrounds. The Goethe-Institut presents two of Zille’s images, taken in 1897 and 1900 at a Berlin fairground, and based on 1985 prints by Thomas Struth from Zille’s original glass-plate negatives.

Opening talk & reception: May 5, 6pm
