Back in the GDR: Design from East Germany

4_Autos_2013_250_001_A.tif

Inspired by Taschen’s enormous book Beyond the Wall, based on the Wende Museum’s collection in Los Angeles, I wrote this piece a while back on East German design – it’s a fascinating topic, and I had to cram an enormous amount into a small space, but it makes a nice counterpoint to my West German piece. It never went on Icon’s website, but the Wende Museum put it online here, which is a nice tribute.
