Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, West German photographer Rudi Meisel captured the everyday life of the common people on both sides of Germany’s West and East divide. His photo-journalistic documents merge to create a unique, historical archive, causing the viewer to be confounded and amazed by the similarity of the subject. This exhibition at C/O Berlin offers an expansive survey of more than 80 images by Meisel, many of which question what is really particular to the West or to the East? Until 1 November.
