TIM HEUBECK Black Gold

Dubai – a metropolis that has reached worldwide acclaim for especially one thing: skyscrapers. It appears to be the model of a city of the future, in which on the one hand one cannot escape a constant astonishment, but on the other hand is left with a perplex feeling and an extinguished sense of belonging. Almost nothing evokes the memory of an oriental city in the desert that used to offer an unique allurement through its markets and compatriots.

TIM HEUBECK Black Gold

Dubai – a metropolis that has reached worldwide acclaim for especially one thing: skyscrapers. It appears to be the model of a city of the future. One in which, on the one hand, one cannot escape a constant astonishment, but on the other hand, is left with a perplex feeling and an extinguished sense of belonging. Almost nothing evokes the memory of an oriental city in the desert that used to offer a unique allurement through its markets and compatriots. Even though these authentic and real-life places are what globalization makes many of us yearn after. Dubai is a city that has, on the surface, distanced itself from its roots. It is also a city in which the remains of the oil-boom during the twentieth century vanish. In between the hundreds of meter high skyscrapers, the foundation of this wealth, the so-called black gold, is hard to surmise. In contrast, the district that represents the origin of this metropolis made of glass still vividly embodies the past with its mosques and spice markets.

Tim Heubeck Black Gold, his fifth book, aims to establish exactly this awareness for the heritage of Dubai in the viewer’s mind. It is a glance behind a perfectly polished city, into the heart of the fishermen and market criers. An attempt, besides all of the anonymity and the fast-paced life that people are faced with. To open one’s eyes to all that otherwise slides into oblivion.
