Which stories do private spaces tell about the lives of the people who used to live there or still do? Don’t rooms have something in common with faces, which mirror the being of the person behind it? Isn’t history, its emergence and fading, easily perceivable and readable in the living spaces of human beings?
These were the questions which the German photographer Beatrice Minda asked herself and which made the interior spaces of unique houses the focus of her work. Her search for these hidden places, bringing us closer to a world bygone and depicting history between now and then, lead her through Europe, to Iran, and lastly also to Myanmar. In her extensive travels through the entire country she delved into rooms and places filled with histories, capturing their essence in her photo graphs. Her wonderful pictures from Myanmar will be publicly exhibited in May during the opening of the new Goethe-Institute.
