Matthias Leupold is not a documentary photographer, however “realistic” his pictures may appear. The reality of his pictures is always staged.

Born in East Berlin in 1959, he lived there in the district of Prenzlauer Berg until his emigration to the western part of the city in 1986, where he has been working on pictures since 1983, staged with actors and directed counter worlds to everyday life in East Germany. His research and examination of their norms and conventions led him to look for images of “reality behind reality” and topics that lie outside public and propagated self-assurance.

The opening speech will be given by Ekkehard Maaß, who founded the Literarische Salon in Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg in 1978 and became one of the most important meeting places for a generation of artists, who, 10 years before the end of the GDR, had abandoned their socialist ideology.
