Photo Gallery The Twilight of the Palace

The Palast der Republik was a showpiece building in East Berlin, a congress hall as well as a center for public entertainment. By 1993 it had been sealed off to the public. Thorsten Klapsch became the last photographer to capture its interiors before a long period of demolition began.
