A series of exhibitions by the Kommunale Galerien in Berlin and the Berlin Regionalmuseen as part of the 6th European Month of Photography in Berlin

Karl-Ludwig Lange created his artistic work on his own behalf over a period of five decades. A multi-part exhibition series, opened as part of the 6th European Month of Photography in Berlin in November 2014, shows his work in ten different locations independently of any strictly topographic reference. The photographer thus expresses his individual version of how the city of Berlin developed. The Mitte Museum in Berlin-Wedding shows e.g. photos from Berlin-Friedrichshagen.

The districts of Wedding and Friedrichshagen are connected by the settlement policy of Prussian emperor Frederick II. The residential areas in what is today Bölschestrasse, which Lange photographed in 1993 and 2003, go back to the settlement policy of Frederick II, as does Berlin Gesundbrunnen with the colonies on the Panke river.

Monika Kleiner, art historian in Berlin, has long been familiar with the district history of Friedrichshagen. Her lecture traces the history of Wedding and Friedrichshagen by way of comparison and relates the photos from Karl-Ludwig Lange to it.

Monika Kleiner is a member of the Bürgerverein Friedrichshagen e.V. (Friedrichshagen Citizens' Association) which actively campaigns for the protection of monuments and buildings of historical interest.
