75,00€

« Letzte Generation Ost » an article by Alison Stieven-Taylor : An Australian in Paris for Paris Photo November 17, 2015 – France: This book is unique in many aspects. Its subject matter deals with the impact of the former GDR and its collapse, on the last generation of GDR citizens. Photo-artist Kristin Trüb, who is of this generation says she and her peers “were born in the final years of the former GDR. Their families corresponded to the propagandized principles, they received socialist education in their early years, and lived in the typical tower blocks in Hagenow. Naturally, since the collapse of the former GDR, much has changed. This project is an approach to illustrate how that last generation experienced the collapse of the GDR, what they noticed consciously and how they look back on this time now”.

Kristin conducted interviews with nine of her peers, took their portraits and other photographs to illustrate and convey the impression of the memories and experiences of the last generation of the former GDR. These interviews and images appear in the book along with maps and dossiers on each person. It’s beautifully printed and packaged in a box in line with the tone of the publisher, Éditions Bessard that is known for its unique approach to book design. It’s quickly become one of my favourite books.

Their families corresponded to the propagandized principles, they received socialist education in their early years and lived in the typical tower blocks in Hagenow. Naturally, since the collapse of the former GDR, much has changed. Interviews with nine selected representatives of that generation as well as portraits and various photographs create an impression of the memories
and experiences of the last generation east.

Das narrative Buch « Letzte Generation Ost » beleuchtet verschiedene Lebensläufe einer Generation, die wenige Jahre vor dem Fall der Mauer in der ehemaligen DDR geboren wurden. Zentraler Schauplatz in der fotografischen Auseinandersetzung mit den unterschiedlichen Biografien, ist die Plattenbausiedlung in Hagenow in der die Fotografin und ihre Protagonisten gemeinsam aufwuchsen. Ihre Familien entsprachen dem propagierten Leitbild, sie erhielten eine sozialistische frühkindliche Erziehung und wohnten in einer durchschnittlichen Plattenbausiedlung in Hagenow. Nach der Wende hat sich viel verändert. Interviews, Portraits und Fotografien aus ihrer Plattenbausiedlung verdichten sich zu einem Gesamteindruck ihrer Erinnerungen.
