Ulrich Wüst: Stadtbilder | Nachlass Reviewed in Los Angeles Times
May 25, 2017
Ulrich Wüst: Stadtbilder | Nachlass has been reviewed by Christopher Knight in the Los Angeles Times.
"Barely a single living soul is glimpsed in 48 black-and-white urban photographs from the late 1970s and early 1980s by Berlin-based Ulrich Wüst. When people are there, they’re typically obscured behind the windshield of a car on an otherwise empty city street, hidden within a dark sidewalk shadow in the composition’s margins or far off in the distance, back near the vanishing point of a brick roadway lined with shabby buildings."

Ulrich Wüst at The Chrysler Museum of Art
January 13, 2017
The Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk, Virginia brings the photography of Ulrich Wüst to the U.S. with their exhibition, Public and Private: East Germany in Photographs by Ulrich Wüst. Through 84 black and white prints and more than 200 album-mounted prints, the exhibition explores public planning in East Germany under socialist rule and the opposing non-conformity of private life. Trained as an urban planner, Wüst's photographs provide critique to the East German approach to city building, while also providing evocative views of the former totalitarian states and the subsequent transformation of the capital, Berlin, after reunification.
