Die Sehnsucht

18th July – 11th August 2018

C.S. Lewis once famously described Sehnsucht as “inconsolable longing” in the human heart for “we know not what.”

Die Sehnschut can be roughly translated as “intensely missing”. No equivalent English word—describes deep emotional state. Compound word from “Das Sehnen”—yearning and “Das Seichtum”—long or lingering illness. In psych represents thoughts and feelings about all facets of life that are unfinished or imperfect, paired with a yearning for ideal alternative experiences. “Life’s longings” or individual’s search for happiness while coping with the reality of unattainable wishes. Ambiguous emotional occurrence.
