Berlinische Galerie

Saturday morning, time to get active. After making a little excursion to Pankow with Ignacio to give away flyers of the veggie dinner, I'm meeting Steven in the Admiralbrücke. The plan is to go to the Berlinische Galerie and then take some shoots with our cameras somewhere around the city. It's nice getting in touch again and doing stuff together.

The current exhibition at the Berlinische Galerie  is Nan Goldin, american photographer born in a jewish family in D.C and grown up in Boston. Some of her topics, gay and transexual scene, hard-drug subculture, sex and nudity have also provocked criticism among the public.One of her most famous work is The Ballad of Sexual Dependency, which depict drug use, violent, aggressive couples and autobiographical moments.

She currently lives between Berlin, Paris and Yale, where she works as a teacher.

Some critics have accused her of making heroin-use appear glamorous, and of pioneering a grunge style that later became popularized by youth fashion magazines.
