As a young photographer Maria Sewcz created a series of radical photographs of Berlins east side. The Reichstag, Rathaus, Alexanderplatz, Th‰lmann Memorial and the border with the west marked the limits of her urban topography. Made in 1987, these bold images capture a cold and irreconcilable rage with the status quo at this period of transition. inter esse is a Berlin tale in which recent German history finds expression. Expressed in dynamic movements through constant changes of perspective, the story has no interest in subordinating one individuals perception to so-called historical necessities. Maria Sewcz, born in 1960 and raised in Northern Germany, submitted the portfolio inter esse as her thesis at the Academy of Visual Arts in Leipzig in 1987.
