The edition was created in connection with the photo artist's latest project, in which he precisely superimposes his own photographs of urban situations over historical views from the 19th and 20th centuries.The motif shows - like a palimpsest - the situation at the legendary Café Kranzler on Kurfürstendamm then and now. Opened in 1932 and rebuilt in 1957/1958, it was an institution in the west of Berlin for decades and a magical spot in the urban ensemble of this section of the famous promenade. To this day, the exterior of the building has not changed significantly. The photo print condenses the history of this iconic street section with a perspective of the architectural ensemble in the background (Memorial Church, Upper West) into a single, exciting image.
