Schönhauser Allee, a street that runs through the districts of Pankow and Prenzlauer Berg, from Berliner Straße in the north to Alte Schönhauser Straße in the south, has attracted the attention of countless photographers over the years. Regardless of where they come from, these photographers have used their cameras to document everyday life on the street as well as in its subway stations, shops, restaurants, cafés, and bars. They have also used their cameras to capture fashion models posing against the backdrop of its busy intersections and 19th-century tenement buildings.

The exhibition Schönhauser Allee features photographs taken largely between the construction and the fall of the Berlin Wall and one contemporary video. Together, these visual materials speak to the everyday lives of those living either on or around the Schönhauser Allee and to the changes the street has undergone over several decades.

With photographs by Ursula Arnold, Sibylle Bergemann, Christian Borchert, Kurt Buchwald, Arno Fischer, Harald Hauswald, Bernd Heyden, York der Knoefel, Ingar Krauss, Werner Lieberknecht, Werner Mahler, Roger Melis, Barbara Metselaar Berthold, Helga Paris, Manfred Paul, Robert Paris, Ludwig Rauch, Rudolf Schäfer, Uwe Steinberg, Brigitte Voigt and Ulrich Wüst.
