Signed C-print in every copies
Letzte Generation Ost by Kristin Trüb book is unique in many aspects. Its subject matter deals with the impact of the former GDR and its collapse, on the last generation of GDR citizens. Photo-artist Kristin Trüb, who is of this generation says she and her peers “were born in the final years of the former GDR. Their families corresponded to the propagandized principles, they received socialist education in their early years, and lived in the typical tower blocks in Hagenow. Naturally, since the collapse of the former GDR, much has changed. This project is an approach to illustrate how that last generation experienced the collapse of the GDR, what they noticed consciously and how they look back on this time now.
