About the artwork

While the subjects of his photographs are usually theatres and opera houses captured in various regions of Germany, in this series Bernhard Hartmann departs from munificent interiors devoid of spectators to reveal a world of open skies. This melancholic image once again stems from his frenetic, quasi-obsessional, and poetic search, as he immortalises abandoned sites in the course of his travels. This photograph was taken in October 2018 in the Alhambra Palace in Granada, Andalusia, a site built by Moor architects and listed as UNESCO World Heritage. The gardens surrounding it are called "Generalife" meaning Jannat al-Arif in Arabic: "Heaven" or "the garden of the architect" and express the mode of spiritual thought of Islamic Arab aristocrats: a sweet, pleasant life among gardens evoking the Muslim heaven.
