November 2019 marks the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berliner Mauer, the wall that divided Germany’s capital city for around 28 years. To coincide this occassion The Ballery presents a photography exhibition featuring Berlin artist Andreas Fux. 


Andreas Fux was born in 1964 in East Berlin. He grew up as a citizen of the GDR and trained as an electrician. In the early 80's Andreas self trained himself as photographer and soon after contributed images of the East German punk and youth scene for cultural magazines such as DAS Magazin and DEFA film productions. 


On 9th November 1989, the night the Berlin wall opened, Andreas walked into West Berlin as a witness, a new world to discover. In this exhibition The Ballery presents works that surround this period as well as early unseen personal works. 


Im November 2019 jährt sich zum 30. Mal der Fall der Berliner Mauer, die die deutsche Hauptstadt rund 28 Jahre lang trennte. Anlässlich dieses Jubiläums zeigt The Ballery eine Fotoausstellung des Berliner Künstlers Andreas Fux. 


Andreas Fux wurde 1964 in Ostberlin geboren. Er ist als DDR-Bürger aufgewachsen und ausgebildeter Elektriker. In den frühen 80er-Jahren bildete sich Andreas selbst zum Fotografen aus und veröffentlichte bald darauf Bilder der ostdeutschen Punk- und Jugendszene in Kulturmagazinen wie dem DAS Magazin und DEFA-Filmproduktionen. 


Am 9. November 1989, der Nacht des Mauerfalls, betrat Andreas West-Berlin als Zeuge und tauchte damit in eine neue Welt ein, die es zu entdecken galt. In der Ausstellung präsentiert The Ballery Werke aus dieser Zeit sowie frühe persönliche Arbeiten, die noch nie öffentlich ausgestellt wurden.
