GALERIE SEHNSUCHT – The longing of photographic artists and collectors
Galerie Sehnsucht is a great gallery in a hip and upcoming part of Rotterdam. Housed in three of the socalled ‘Hofbogen‘ – architectural bows once part of a railway line – it is centered at the urban hotspot of Rotterdam, the city that is booming in every tripadvice. Galerie Sehnsucht started as a longing of art historian Mariska Pool and photographer Mark van Hattem to have their own gallery. And YOU may have Sehnsucht to a have a fair chance of exhibiting your work without heavy costs. Or you may have Sehnsucht to find some beautiful (photo)graphic image for an accessible price. We make it happen for you!
Galerie Sehnsucht is structured around a model of participation. We do “call for entries”, and exhibit work from young and established photographers around the globe.
When you want to start a collection of photographic art, or just want one beautiful piece for a reasonable price for above your couch, or you look for new work from upcoming artists, this is your chance.
The ‘Galerie Sehnsucht’ will not be just like any other art gallery. It will be a place with good vibrations, where image makers, collectors and those interested in the (photo)graphic arts can meet, follow or give workshops and lectures, read and exchange images, music, poetry and inspiration, drink tea & coffee & eat our fabulous home made cake.
We want to create an artistic homeland for images dealing with dreams, longings, originality, alternative facts, eclectic associations, and we don’t care if it looks out of time, out of place, elitarian or whatever. As long as it works on the imagination……
