Re/Imaging Berlin
Wake Forest University
Department of Art

July 2008

"Re-Imaging Berlin" is a fine art, digital photography course. Students research the history and location of specific historical documents, such as the photographs from the airlift of 1948 and the film of President Kennedy's (now cliché) "Ich bin ein Berliner" speech. Other locations will include, Checkpoint Charlie, Potsdamer Platz and the new Reichstag. Students will travel to these sites on bicycle and mass transportation to re-photograph the area. Each student will create a body of images, which will be printed on a desktop inkjet printer for regular critiques. The final project will be a group of these photographs in a portfolio and on this web site. Click on the names below to view the photograhs.
