Street Level will open an international touring exhibition of historic photographs by Willy Römer. Romer was a Berlin-based photojournalist whose work documented not only the tumultuous political events of his era – the November Revolution, the abdication of the Emperor, the Spartacist Uprising, mass demonstrations and workers' strikes, the rise of Nazi militias – but also everyday life in the streets and backyards of Berlin. His photo agency Phototek Römer & Bernstein was one of the leading photo agencies of the Weimar Republic and was closed down by the Nazis in 1935.
