The C/O Berlin App offers a digital extension of C/O Berlin's exhibition program. Whether it's selected film clips of queer German film history or previously unpublished photographs by GDR photographer Harald Hauswald at underground stations in the immediate vicinity of where they were taken – the app feeds your smartphone screen with interesting, exhibition-related content and invites you on visual discovery tours.

Stay tuned for what's coming next!

Queerness in German Cinema

Since the invention of the medium in 1839, photography has not only depicted people; it has also significantly influenced their position in society and politics due to the way that photography visually categorizes people based on their physical characteristics, behavior, and clothing. Since 1910, this social process also spreads through film and cinema.

As part of the exhibition Queerness in Photography, the C/O Berlin App Edition #2 showed selected film clips by Lothar Lambert, Rosa von Praunheim, Ulrike Ottinger and Michael Brynntrup, among others. Film, like photography, can be an act of liberation and self-empowerment. By visualising one's own identity or documenting communal cohesion in the queer community, new artistic forms of representation emerge.

Edition #1
C/O Berlin App
Discover photography at the sub

Edition #1 of the C/O Berlin App was a great success! Over the course of the exhibition Harald Hauswald . Voll das Leben! Reloaded, C/O Berlin fans were able to discover partly unpublished photographic material by the OSTKREUZ photographer at selected subway stations on the U2 line. These images were digitally displayed in direct proximity of the sites where they have once been created. With the help of augmented reality technologies, billboards on smartphone screens were transformed into images of our exhibition.

We are already working at full speed for the upcoming Edition #2Stay tuned for what's to come!
