About the artwork

German artist Bernhard Hartmann owes his recent success to his breathtaking representations of historic buildings that are highly symbolic and entirely dedicated to art and culture. He also questions himself, on his travels, about the meaning and heritage value applied to old abandoned buildings such as his series on Havana, taken between 2010 and 2014. La Guarida represented on this photograph is the most famous paladar (private restaurant) in the city. A true site of pilgrimage for lovers of Cuban cinema, it was the shooting location of the film Fresa y Chocolate by director Tomas Gutiérrez Alea, which was nominated for an Oscar in 1994. The ancestral decor was preserved, and even today, the marble staircase still stands majestically in the centre of the building. Bernhard Hartmann pays it an eternal tribute through his lens, magnifying the dust, cracks, and aging decorations through his very wide-angle shots.
