Weitsprung 2014 : the Art Buying teams of Hamburg’s agencies Kolle Rebbe, thjnk, Jung von Matt and Scholz & Friends and their WEITSPRUNG event. GoSee presents Katrin Grün & Alice Feja’s "Hello GoSee", the making-of film and a selection of snaps

“Dingy rainy weather outside – but happy glowing faces inside thanks to great portfolios and photographers” –the first comment we heard from the art buyers at the second WEITSPRUNG portfolio day. When round two hit on 4 April 2014 young photographers were once again treated to personal chats with art buyers from Hamburg’s biggest advertising agencies, providing them with honest feedback on their portfolios.

Photographers could apply online in advance on the WEITSPRUNG website with their portfolios. The Art Buying Jury viewed and put together a mix of various photographic approaches. This meant that artificial photographers had the same chance of getting some advertising feedback, as classic commercial and fashion photographers. Here on GoSee Katrin Grün (Art Buyer thjnk) and Alice Feja (Head of Art Buying Kolle Rebbe) explain in their very charming “Hello GoSee” just what the nice event is all about.

After the 25 minute viewings, the portfolios of all participating photographers were collected and put together so that in the evening the agencies’ art and creative directors had the opportunity of also viewing them and meeting the photographers for a drink or two. The three best portfolios were also voted on and announced. And here on GoSee we can announce that the winners are:

DBC - Driven by creatives recommends : crowdfunding for director Robin POLAK's ‘Oskarreif’ has started. Take part !

‘Oskarreif is a satirical short film which mocks clichéd drama and cheesy blockbusters that occupy our TV programme.

Experiments in electric ink: GoSee London at Fashion Space Gallery Relaunch

Fashion Space Gallery presents Relaunch, a series of consecutive tailor-made live events, marking a new approach to the space in central London.

Recently appointed new Director of the Fashion Space Gallery, Ligaya Salazar, curator of renowned shows such as Yohji Yamamoto and Fashion V Sport at the Victoria and Albert Museum, worked closely on the project with assistant curators Polona Dolzan and Joana Filipe.

The Relaunch programme encompasses exciting participatory events that are free to sign up to and centre on themes related to fashion.

GoSee London attended one of the first in the series, Bare Conductive, a workshop laboratory inspired by the frequent intersections of fashion with technology. Never one to shy away from getting our hands dirty in the name of fashion, we tested the design possibilities of conductive ink.

The workshop was hosted by Studio PSK, creative associates of Bare Conductive, a London based design and technology studio. Their electric paint was born from a collaborative project started at the Royal College of Art and science specialists Imperial College London. In 2009 Bare Conductive set up their own business and now thanks to their starter kits available from the online store, anyone can turn their home into a design and technology lab, ...

GoSee loves • Bravo Cabaret de Paris ! The premiere of the unique Rambazamba theatre in film clips and snapshots on GoSee

ROLF SCHEIDER CASTING invited us to Rambazamba Theatre and GoSee was happy to take him up on it. And we experienced a night with Casting Director Rolf Scheider that we won’t be forgetting any time soon. The theatre seats up to 100 guests, so obviously other than Rolf’s guests, it was mainly friends and family that were all bundles of nerves on the opening night. After all Rambazamba isn’t just any old theatre. Enter a collective of people who are considered ‘mentally disabled’ according to the norms that still reign free in our society and yet show us a true magical spectacle.

At the beginning we were feeling a little apprehensive, didn’t know what to expect, however just 20 minutes into the show we had been transported to another world. The stage became the norm, a much more colourful, friendly and dynamic space than the one we usually cohabitate. Unstandardized, unregulated, each actor a little important wonderful world in themselves. Singing suddenly became personal expression rather than an octave achievement showcase, knife throwers didn’t need any knives and a new dimension of sexy danced before our very eyes. Bravo Rambazamba !
