The Inspiration of Colombian Art

Mrs. Marcela Heguy, spouse of the Colombian Ambassador to Germany kindly hosted our first meeting of the new club year 2015-2016 in her residence on 19 October 2015.

We began with a brief introduction of each group member, followed by a lecture with presentation on Colombian Art by the Colombian curator, Mr. Jorge Sanguino. We learned that Colombian art has 3,500 years of history offering insights into the country’s cultural and political past.

Impressed with Mr. Sanguino’s wide knowledge and experience in the art world, we asked several questions relating to his projects in Berlin which he answered very competently. Lively English conversations continued during the pleasant reception with coffee, tea and delicious Colombian finger food.
