Wim Wenders. Instant Stories
C|O Berlin 2018
Wim Wenders. Instant Stories at C|O Berlin presents a selection from the late 1960s to the early 1980s, when Polaroids were a visual notebook, a field of experimentation, and a photographic road movie. The resulting collection of pictures includes thousands of unique, personal shots of his film sets and travels through Europe, the United States, and many other places around the globe. They show Wenders in his personal surroundings and portraits of celebrities and friends including Annie Leibovitz, Robby Müller, Dennis Hopper, and Peter Handke. The exhibition will be making its first and only stop in Germany at C|O Berlin. Along with Wenders’ photographs, the exhibition includes excerpts from films in which Wenders used the medium of instant photography as part of the film narrative. The exhibition is presented in cooperation with the Wim Wenders Foundation and The Photographers’ Gallery in London. The Berlin show was curated by Felix Hoffmann and Anna Duque y González. A catalog accompanying the exhibition is published by Schirmer/Mosel, Munich.
