FENSTER61 ("WINDOW61″) uses an approx. 2 by 2 meter shop window in the very busy Torstraße, near subway Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz in Berlin Mitte. Since 2005 photographers are presented in monthly changing exhibitions with works that more or less deal with Berlin. FENSTER61 is not a gallery. FENSTER61 doesn't have opening hours, since the visitor is in a public space. The window is lit at night. FENSTER61.DE documents and archives the exhibitions.

Exhibition at Leica Gallery Solms, August 2011

During his many travels through the former Eastern bloc, the German photographer Jan Michalko visited
Romania for the first time in 2004 to work on a documentary about the new member countries of the
European Union. He was fascinated by the country: the history, the mentality of the people, the contrast
between urban and rural life, the mysticism and the resulting inconsistencies. Since then he has been to
Romania several times, always in search of intensive, personal, unadulterated and irrational moments. His
photos, often characterized by the comedy and tragedy of everyday life, the poetry of the unspectacular,
show people in their natural environment and give the viewer an impression of the atmosphere they live in.

Report with Felix Schnetzer (text)
Ostrava used to be the pride of czech socialism. Today Ostrava is an industrial town without industry. As a new member of the European Union, the city is struggling with ecological, economical and social problems. But the "black steel heart" is still pounding: The communist and industrial past is still present, young and creative people appreciate the raw energy and the unique atmosphere of this lively city. Ostrava is an important but nonetheless forgotten piece of the czech identity.
