    WHO'S AFRAID OF THE BOGEYMAN

    Helke Misselwitz East Germany, 1988

    Helke Misselwitz followed the success of Winter Adé with this rich portrait of a private coal company in East Berlin. Vividly capturing the last gasps of the GDR, Who’s Afraid of the Bogeyman transcends anthropological snapshot by virtue of Misselwitz’s boundless curiosity and piercing empathy.

    BULKY TRASH

    Helke Misselwitz Germany, 1991

    What begins as a portrait of a young, East Berlin punk band soon turns into a vivid document of a nation undergoing seismic change. Shot in 1989, with reunification looming, Bulky Trash is an incisive examination of skepticism and cultural identity from the precarious brink of a moribund era.
