Abstract:

Benjamin Katz's photographs of Berlin Havelhöhe form both a social and an artistic document: Katz's beginnings as a photographer and his great interest in the photography of the modern age will be found here along side the location itself with its traces of its past as a National Socialist Luftwaffe base, converted into a hospital for patients from all walks of society, not only Nazis but also the persecuted.00In the 1950s the hospital Berlin-Havelhöhe (today the Clinic for Anthroposophical Medicine) took over the building that had originally been erected as the National Socialist State Academy for Aviation. It was also there that the pilots who had attacked Guernica in 1934 as part of the Condor Legion had been trained. In 1960, Benjamin Katz fell ill with tuberculosis for a period of one and a half years. He stayed in Havelhöhe and produced an extensive collection of photographs during this time. 48 enlargements together with 380 working prints from the negatives on 30 facsimiled DIN-A4 pages document on the one hand the everyday routine as a patient, but also the architecture and the traces of National Socialism.
