Events • ‘One breath under the ice’ – apnea world record diver TOLGA TASKIN, accompanied by Director and Photographer Klaus HEINZLER c/o BANRAP; we have three minutes of breathtaking film for you on GoSee

17.09.2020 • In his heart-felt project “One breath under the ICE”, Klaus HEINZLER c/o BANRAP presents the purest form of diving – apnea. He had the once-in-a-lifetime-chance of accompanying Tolga Taskin when he set his world record in Austria. Taskin is the first person in the world to reach a depth of 75 meters beneath a solid sheet of ice.

Tolga Taskin tells us about his path : “I was really lucky to be able to grow up surrounded by apnea divers. As a child at my grand parent’s in Turkey, I spent more time in the water than on land. That’s how I playfully got to know freediving, the underwater world and breathlessness. I can still see right before my eyes how my grand parents would stand on the shore with wrinkled brows frantically looking for me on the surface of the water, constantly hoping I was alright.

When I got older, I discovered that It wasn’t only curiosity and fun that drew me under water. A feeling of deep relaxation slowly developed in me whenever I experienced the tranquility of closing my eyes and floating weightlessly or falling somewhere beneath the water surface in this...

Events • Is it morally acceptable to sit back and do nothing? – Watch The Troublemaker, a two-year independent production about our collective response to the climate crisis by Director Sasha Snow, released in five languages via Video on Demand

22.08.2020 • Oscar Winning UK production company PASSION PICTURES and multi-award winning filmmaker, SASHA SNOW, alongside renowned sustainability pioneer Thomas Ermacora have released ‘The Troublemaker’, a two-year independent production about our collective response to the climate crisis.

As a society, and as individuals, we have always been defined by how we react in the face of a crisis. This is the archetypal story played out on a global scale, presenting the opportunity for self-discovery if we are prepared to face up to the existential threat. ‘The Troublemaker’ scratches the niggling itch that is lurking in many of our brains about the extinction of planetary systems that seems to be going on all around us, and the dawning realization that something has to be done. Ultimately, the film poses a simple question: with the consensus of informed opinion declaring a ‘climate emergency’, is it morally acceptable to sit back and do nothing?

“I don’t want my children to look back and think I led a frivolous life and then just abandoned them. I want them to know I did everything I possibly...

Sense of Wonder is a cross section of the artist’s career, including her long-term photographic work at research stations in the rainforests of South America and her more recent project at the Hanko Bird Observatory. The diverse nature of the rainforest and the migratory birds of the north are a mesmerizing part of the exhibited works.

Sanna Kannisto’s métier is nature photography. Like her role models, she sees herself both as a scientist and an artist. In fact, her analytical insight is equal in every way to her creativity and passion. She creates moments of extraordinary beauty while, at the same time, bringing to light what has been previously remained hidden. Sanna Kannisto has her very own method of photographing birds against a white backdrop bathed in light: Removed from their usual surroundings, each and every detail appears in unparalleled clarity, enabling their precise...
