Not quite there yet but they will be. They have to be.
Amerika Haus, was an institution established by the Americans shortly after WWII to give the Germans glimpses of the American ways of life. This particular building is from the late fifties and built to the purpose.
In 2006, Amerika Haus, in Berlin was handed over to the city authorities and closed to the public.
Not so any more. October 30, 2014, it will be reopened by C/O Berlin, which took over the estate a couple of years back and have been renovating it ever since. It is going to be an important site for photography.
The opening of America Haus coincide with Europeans Month of Photography, that runs over 250 different arrangements over 150 galleries. The opening of Amerika Haus will definitely be an attraction even in that amount of artistic traffic.
Yesterday, it did not look like much. Ten days from today it will all happen.
