Description

The book post- by Russian photographer Dmitry Vyshemirsky is a reflexive view of the post-German and post-Soviet cultural space of the Kaliningrad Region, a Russian exclave on the Baltic Sea. Until 1945 this territory: Eastern Prussia was a part of Germany. Immanuel Kant, Friedrich Bessel, Hannah Arendt and other famous thinkers and scientists lived there. At present, it is a cultural landscape that appeared from a contradictive synthesis of Russian and German cultures. It is an example of a palimpsest, often absurd and highly interesting.

The photographs for the book post- were created in the early 2000s as an artistic attempt to understand the phenomenon of Eastern Prussia and the Kaliningrad region, their interaction and cultural links.
