I was thinking about the photo booth, when I learned about an exhibition in Switzerland about this very topic. Unfortunately I am going to miss it, but it sounds great, with images by Louis Aragon, Richard Avedon, André Breton, Paul Eluard, Max Ernst, Lee Friedlander, Jacques-Henri Lartigue, Raymond Queneau, Gerhard Richter, Cindy Sherman, Yves Tanguy, Andy Warhol, David Wojnarowicz, Fluxus, among others.
After Amélie, the photo booth regained a nostalgic rebirth. I used to take pictures of myself for bureaucratic purposes, always at Alexanderplatz, right in front of Dussman, but the last time when I was there, it had been used as a toilette, and it was impossible to breath there. I never used the one around the corner at Kastanienallee...
