We have different events coming up

Galerie Sehnsucht hosts two kinds of events: those that are public, and those that are for those invited only. The lasts ones you won’t find on this site, but believe us, we have a couple of them scheduled already. Mostly they are previews, vernissages and the like. If you want to organise something for your guests only, don’t hesitate to contact us.

The public activities will be varied. We will start with will be “photographic café evenings”, which will consist of a presentation by a photographer, an art historian or another interesting speaker, of some 45 minutes, after which we will discuss what we ‘ve heard, and give the opportunity to photographers and/or collectors to share work with one another. We strive to organize these evenings once a month, in co-operation with the Rotterdamse Fotografieschool and others. We are busy making a programme right now, and expect to start in december 2017. Among the presentators will be Jeroen de Wijs, of the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam, our own art historian Mariska Pool, and many others. Subjects will be as varied as ranging from “technology vs. message”, “the weird camera”,  to “women photographers in past and present”.

If you could give an inspiring presentation on photography, collecting photography or your currect project, don’t hesitate to contact us.

And: our opening, on November 1st, will be something special. More on this later!
