The German Democratic Republic cinema posters

Posters created by the eminent Polish posters artists for the films produced in the German Democratic Republic are a perfect opportunity to bring back memories from before 1990 for the elder visitors and to get to know the German film history for the younger visitors. The exhibition contains works by excellent Polish poster artists: Majewski, J. Erol, J. Fisak and many others, made for the films from the GDR. Visitors will get chance to admire posters for films such as ‘Colony’ [directed by H. E. Brandt], „Je t’aime, chérie” [directed by R. Oehme], ‘Das Schilfrohr’ [directed by J. Kunert] and other East German productions. The films present different styles and that is why also the posters, created especially for them, allow visitors to travel through the imagination of every single poster artist to the films shot in the Socialist country with the capital city of East Berlin. It is widely known that the Polish and the Hungarians are like brothers, which is visible in the exhibition of posters created by eminent poster artists such as: M. Wasilewski, J. Erol, L. Majewski and many more for the Hungarian films. What is more, among presented titles visitors can admire Hungarian posters for such films as: 'Fogjuk Meg Es Vigyetek' or 'Autó'. The exhibition is a perfect opportunity to see the posters to film by such respected directors as: I. Szabo, A. Kovacs, G. Szomjas and many others. They all represent different conventions and various film genres – from a documentary ‘Bukarest, 21:30’ [directed by Nicolae Merdżiujanu], through a drama ‘Just Like Home’ [directed by Márta Mészáros], to a crime story ‘Vulture’ [directed by Ferenc András]. Every visitor will definitely find something interesting to them in the exhibition devoted to the contact of two so close to each other nations: the Hungarians and the Polish.
