Anna Adam's Berlin Kolo Book
Anna Adam, freelance artist and stage designer residing in Berlin, constructed this Kolo book representing Berlin’s history versus her new vision of the city today. This work is currently on display in the “Berlin Through My Lens” Exhibition. Anna chose to construct her work using two disassembled Kolo Newport photo albums, in sage and red. She took both of the covers off and reassembled them, constructing one book. She then cut a frame shape into the entire book, leaving a stage that can be viewed from both sides. She chose to combine different themes all displayed on the one stage seen from either side.
The red side represents her vision of “new” Berlin. The city is portrayed as a party and event location; however, it also represents her hope for Berlin in the future.
Anna’s art is exhibited in numerous museums and galleries throughout Europe. This work can be found at Hauptsache, Rosenthaler Strasse 32, one of five fine retailers celebrating the creative community through this event.
