When photographer Michael Nether set out for Berlin in 1969, that city held enormous attraction for young intellectuals and artists, just as it had done in the Roaring Twenties. There were demonstrations and happenings, and everywhere people held endless discussions that continued through the night. Scandalous theatrical performances and legendary concerts with musicians such as Bob Dylan, Mick Jagger, Leonard Cohen and George Moustaki gave expression to a new sensibility. And then there was Klaus Kinski, in his unforgettable performance of Jesus Christ and other one-man shows. With his camera, Nether recorded these highlights of cultural change in spectacular pictures not only in Berlin, but also in Paris, his native Stuttgart and elsewhere, and the present volume brings this period back to life again.
The journalist Jorg Palitzsch has made a name for himself as the author, among other books, of LogBuch: Eintragungen uber eine wild gewordene Welt. Palitzsch has known Michael Nether for many years and has studied his work in depth."
