Juxtaposing East and West Germany in photos
Grey streets, rain, East German monotony: Rudi Meisel took this photo on the corner of Schönhauser Allee and Dimitroffstrasse in East Berlin. In 1984, it was hard to imagine that Berlin's Prenzlauer Berg district would become the hippest part of the united city less than a decade later. The exhibition "Compatriots 1977-1987" runs through November 1 in the c/o Gallery in Berlin's Amerika Haus.
