Black and White Photography: Berlin – OST

A black and white impression from Berlin.

The photo shows the famous lettering “OST” on the roof of the Volksbühne theater at Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz.

In June 2017, at the end of Frank Castorf’s longtime directorship at the Volksbühne, the installation was removed. Until then, the concise and ambiguous lettering (english: “EAST”) was a landmark of Berlin visible from afar.
