“Not a stranger to the city of Berlin at all, back after 16 years, I was suddenly a resident of the Grunewald colony, villas and bungalows near small lakes with public access....I began to photograph with a flashlight between two and three o'clock a.m."

     “Not a stranger to the city of Berlin at all, back after 16 years, I was suddenly a resident of the Grunewald colony, villas and bungalows near small lakes with public access. I bumped into a policeman on my first night walk who tried to tell me to go to bed - instead I began to photograph with a flashlight between two and three o'clock a.m. Gaslights above, SUVs below. Very strange new sleek villas with mad stairways leading to anonymous entrance doors.”

     Various Small Grunewalds is a small book in the tradition of Ed Ruscha, 22 black-and-white photographs, designed by Steffen Kalauch and printed by the Bookfactory, and will serve as the exhibition catalogue for this show.

     Ulf Erdmann Ziegler
published his first novel only nine years ago. With his third book, Nichts Weisses (Nothing White), he was shortlisted for the German Book Prize. Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung stated he was a “knife-sharp agitator.”

     Events at Deutsches Haus are free and open to the public. If you would like to attend this event, please send an email to deutscheshaus.rsvp@nyu.edu.
