Often displayed as diptych, "Berlin" and "Copenhagen" (2000) are large prints made from photocopies – one of the most ephemeral printing processes.

The scenes belong to the first stage in Tillmans’ work, in which he documents young people and parties during the 1990s. The unusual definition of the original photocopy, which has been re-photocopied here, gives it a grain similar to that of a screen print, and a flatness that echoes Warhol's work.
