POINT BLANK GOES COCO LOCO
PHOTO EXHIBITION / MARKUS MEHRING
” CUBA / DANCE ME TO THE END OF LOVE “
at the COCO LOCO
Berneckerstraße 23 / Bochum / Germany
2nd November 2018 until summer 2019
If you like to see my photos at… …no no no, let me start again…. If you like to indulge oneself by spanish food, to feel the spell of vine and like to spend your time with nice fellows, then I can strongly recommend you the COCO LOCO in Bochum.
Dive into the tender and tempting explosion of the senses. Enjoy the taste, the music, the wonderful atmosphere and the beautiful sight of your loved one framed by a modest photo print of me in the background on the wall.
That’s what I call a romantic date.
POINT BLANK: CUBA …CARS
“…no! I don’t write songs about cars! I write songs about the people who drive these cars!”
POINT BLANK: CUBA …PEOPLE
„ Hay que endurecerse sin perder jamas la ternura.“
„ We must be strong without ever losing our tenderness.“
(Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevarra)
POINT BLANK: CUBA …MUSIC
“In Havana, music isn’t a pastime, it’s a way of life.” (Wim Wenders, ‘Buena Vista Social Club’)
This images I took in Havana/Cuba. Besides a stunning concert of the Buena Vista Social Club (see images CHARMING and CLOSE UP) in a small restaurant, we found music everywhere… …in bars, hotels, cafes… …and particularly in the streets.
