Loock Galerie and the Estate of Sibylle Bergemann, in cooperation with Reinbeckhallen and Kicken Berlin, will be showing an extensive selection from the oeuvre of the photographer Sibylle Bergemann (1941-2010) at three venues in the city.
From 1967 onwards, Bergemann worked as a freelance photographer und created numerous reportages, fashion spreads and portraits for art and culture magazines in the GDR, such as Sonntag and Sibylle. After German unification, she worked for magazines like GEO, Die Zeit, Spiegel, Stern, and The New York Times Magazine. For her, photography was a means of artistic expression, and to this day her work fascinates us with its sober sensuality.
Loock Galerie will show for the first time the color photographs that Sibylle Bergemann started taking in 1990, in dialogue with icons from the series of women portraits. The focus at Kicken Berlin will be on photographs from Berlin–Mitte, while the Reinbeckhallen will present an overview of her work, chosen from works in German private collections and the Estate of Sibylle Bergemann.
