Events • Fishermen in Myanmar - photographed by Stev BONHAGE c/o ANDREA HEBERGER

16.03.2020 • “Hidden in the mountains of the Taunggyi District of Shan State, Myanmar, (aka Burma) in South East Asia, lies the second-largest lake of the country at an altitude of 880 meters above sea level. Local fishermen of Inle Lake are known for a distinctive rowing technique: standing on one leg at the stern while wrapping the other leg around the oar. This unique style was born of necessity as the lake is covered by reeds and floating plants, making it difficult to see above them when seated. Standing allows the rower to see beyond the reeds...” Stev BONHAGE c/o ANDREA HEBERGER photographed Fishermen in Myanmar, a country which has recently made headlines because of the persecution of its Rohingya population.

Events • GOSEE ART presents: ‘What are you burning for?’ – the spectacular Burning River – art work by Jan Kuck ... and submit your burning desires to the gallery Bernheimer Contemporary under www.the-burning-river.com!

12.03.2020 • Like a stream of liquid gold, the Isar rushes into the evening atmosphere in Munich from 7 to 15 March. The Isar, Bavaria’s ‘River of Dreams’, is becoming a spectacular piece of light art around the Prater Island for the MCBW (Munich Creative Business Week). A warm welcome to THE BURNING RIVER by Jan Kuck.

“What are you burning for?” is a central issue of our times for artists. Since the world is undergoing major transitions, and there is a great deal of unease in our society, politics on a global level is in danger of going down the slippery slope of extremism, the environment seems to be out of control, the economy is more uncertain than it inspires confidence, and technological progress is making our present look old faster by the day, ... this is an issue of great importance for artists.

For the Munich Creative Business Week, Germany’s largest design event, the river is becoming the setting for perhaps the most spectacular piece of design art at the MCBW: The illuminated Isar. This new form of young urban art is supported both by the Bavarian State Ministry of Economic Affairs,...

11.03.2020 • Among the big discoveries at the GoSeeAWARDS was certainly photographer Hana Knížová. The Czech native studied photography at the London College of Communication. The adversities and hopes of youth, interpersonal relations, intimacy, family bonds... these are the topics she masterfully captures in her sensitive photos. And the quality of her work did not go unnoticed: She has won, for instance, the John Kobal New Work Award in 2013 of the National Portrait Gallery in London as well as Photographer of the Year at Czech Grand Design in 2019.

Hana Knížová on the works submitted by her to the GoSeeAWARDS : “The submitted images are a brief cut through my work, and they come from various projects. Some are individual portraits, and some are part of larger series. I have worked with people from quite opposite backgrounds – from very privileged to socially deprived, and both were an incredible experience. The use of strong colors and repetitiveness plays a major role in my aesthetics.”
