A short look at Robert Koch Institute

Every time some terrible virus is invading our quiet EU lifes, you'll hear for sure about Robert Koch Institute. Created in 1891 and headed from the creation until 1904 by Robert Koch who discovered the tubercle bacilus, it represents today the German federal institution responsible for disease and control prevention. Initially it was called the Royal Prussian Institute for Infections and Diseases. As all the German institutions, the institute wasn't secured of the National-Socialist bio-policies and after the war played an important role in the newly GDR health policies.

For the photographer, the Institute is having a rather humble appearance. A sober red-bricks buildings, but with nice Art Nouveau decorations. A place inspiring for meditation and quiet research in the industrial Wedding.
