"'Köln nach dem Krieg' (Engl.: Cologne after The War): For the first time, this German language volume covers the eventful picture history of Cologne in the time of the Bonn republic, from the building years with new, surprisingly light architecture, over the compression of the city and its adaptation to the automobiles to the rediscovery of the period of promoterism and the representative buildings In the short span of 40 years Cologne is experiencing a rapid development in reconstruction and expansion, from the industrial to the media city, from the war-ruined landscape of ruins to the cultural metropolis on the Rhine.
'Köln nach dem Krieg' contains b/w and color photographs from (international) renowned photographers as well as from wrongly forgotten ones as Johanna FABRI, Peter FISCHER, Jacob C. FENNO or Christel FOMM. They document in impressive pictures the initial view into the future, the rebellion against traditional forms and finally the self-assured appearance of Cologne as a museum and media city. Selected literary texts by Heinrich Böll, Bazon Brock, Lev Kopelew, Rudolf Schwarz, Vilma Sturm, Günter Wallraff, Dieter Wellershoff and others deepen the impressions of the epoch, which is brought to life here in many photographs first shown."
