The Official Opening of Berlin Photo Week @ Chaussee 36 featuring the exhibition ‚Saudade‘ by photographer Olaf Heine is just one month away:
The Brazilian word Saudade (saʊˈdɑːdə) describes a deep emotional state: A touch of melancholy. A turning towards the past or towards the future. A yearning for happiness that has passed, or perhaps never even existed.
In his book ‚Brazil‘ Olaf Heine has tried to show that place of longing, that a generation of Brazilian modernists in architecture, literature and music have designed in the middle of the 20th century as an expression of a positively changing, social, political and urban society.
Which allegedly – considering recent developments in Brazil – seems like wishful thinking or a utopian dream that many a person might gaze back at with Saudade. The exhibition ‚Saudade‘ shows old and new works from Olaf Heine’s Brazil series.
Join us for the the Opening of Berlin Photo Week and the opening of Olaf Heine’s ‚Saudade‘ on October 10th at 7pm @ Chaussee 36, Chausseestrasse 36, 10115 Berlin, Germany.
