travel • ¡Saludos Cuba! Airbnb is proud to announce that Cuban hosts open their doors... enjoy the welcome film on GoSee

27.04.2015 • ¡Saludos Cuba! Airbnb is proud to announce that Cuban hosts will be opening their doors to U.S. travelers, sharing their beautiful country with guests, and helping to expand upon a world where we can all truly belong anywhere. At Airbnb, their vision is to create a world where you can belong anywhere - no matter who you are or how far you’ve traveled. Today, they are proud to welcome Cuba to the global Airbnb community. Starting recently, hosts in Cuba will list over 1,000 of their homes on Airbnb.

For the first time in decades, licensed American travelers will have the chance to experience authentic Cuban hospitality at homes across the island. Despite its proximity to the U.S., Cuba has been off limits to most Americans for over 50 years. Part of Cuba’s appeal to visitors is that it offers an experience unlike anything else. Hospitality isn’t a commodity in Havana—it’s a way of life. Cubans have been welcoming visitors into their homes for decades. Casas particulares—a network of private homestays—have been a popular choice for visitors, as well as an important source of...

22.04.2015 • 'Oh Glorious Sun of Rainbow Afro Wigs' - the work of the late Mike Kelley drew visitors magically to booth of the David Zwirner Gallery at ART COLOGNE. Once again, the New York gallery was in the Rhineland to meet old and new collectors or those interested in art. Purchasing something at Zwirner costs a pretty penny. There are only Big Names such as Neo Rauch, Thomas Ruff or Martin Kippenberger hanging on the walls or as statues such as Iza Genzken's Cowboy in front of the booth. The modern 'Nature Mort' by Wolfgang Tillmans was the center piece of the booth but was sold so fast, we didn't even have the chance to take a picture for you...

Shop • 'EYES WIDE OPEN! 100 Years of Leica Photography' - how the first small-format camera has changed our perspective forever. Comprehensive exhibition in Frankfurt and detailed illustrated book at Kehrer Verlag

21.04.2015 • Last year, Leica celebrated its 100-year anniversary. The perhaps most famous snapshot camera in the world revolutionized our perception and united amateurs and artists to form a fan community which explored new perspectives – more innovative, bold and dynamic but also relatively affordable in 35mm format. The traveling exhibition for the occasion 'EYES WIDE OPEN! 100 Years of Leica Photography' combines work from Nobuyoshi Araki and F.C. Gundlach to Paolo Roversi and Jane Evelyn Atwood, and can be seen at Fotografie Forum Frankfurt. Kehrer Verlag accompanies this extraordinary exhibition with an illustrated book with 1200 photographs, in-depth essays, and previously unpublished documents from the archive of Leica Camera AG. We have a selection for you here on GoSee.

As early as March 1914, Oskar Barnack, who worked as an industrial designer at Ernst Leitz in Wetzlar, completed the first functional model of a small-format camera for 35mm cinema film. The introduction of the Leica, which is a combination of "Leitz” and “Camera”, was delayed until 1925 due to the war, marked a...

Shop • Natural growth meets meticulous design : devine beauty in harmony. Ken Schluchtmanns 'Architecture and Landscape in Norway'

13.04.2015 • We are all familiar with pictures of Norway’s untouched natural landscape. Wherever man tampers with nature, the results can be much less beautiful, more unnatural, and even destructive. Where man has succeeded in harmonizing modern constructions with nature is shown by Berlin-based photographer Ken Schluchtmann in his new photograph book 'Architecture and Landscape in Norway', which appeared at Hatje Cantz Publishing Company. A somewhat unspectacular title for these spectacular insights into a world full of divine beauty.

To produce the photographs for this book, an independent project, Schluchtmann traveled over twenty thousand kilometers, passing through dramatic landscapes and profiling the innovative architecture projects commissioned by the Norwegian government in recent years along the country’s National Tourist Route: from the wildlife observation station at Dovre National Park designed by Snøhetta to the dizzying views provided by Reiulf Ramstad’s terraces at Trollstigen, and the Steilneset Memorial by Peter Zumthor and Louise Bourgeois, which commemorates the...
