[Translate to English:] In eindringlichen Schwarz-Weiß-Bildern

In haunting black-and-white pictures, the Berlin photographer captures Borchert’s apartment and archive after his early death by drowning – shortly before and while the executor dismantled this unique arrangement and distributed the artist’s estate among several institutions. Borchert’s almost reverent treatment of photographic material is perceptible in these images as is the grief of the photographer, who was mourning the loss of her treasured colleague and friend.
