Part of photographer Andreas Gehrke’s powerful narrative series on dormant modernist buildings. Vacant work spaces that once hosted business enterprises playing a significant role in shaping the political, social and economic face of post-war Germany. Founded in 1927, Quelle was Germany’s biggest mail order catalogue company and one of its largest department store chains. This purpose-built building by former Bauhaus student Ernst Neufert in Nuremberg was Quelle’s mail order HQ from 1956 until the company’s insolvency in 2009.
