|18.15||Visit of the Beyond ’91 exhibition|
The Exhibition showcases the work of 14 young journalists, photographers and filmmakers who tell the story of the tumultuous changes of the post-Soviet era. The exhibition takes shape as a series of seven multimedia pieces, which portray cross-border stories from Belarus, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Russia and Ukraine.
Following Beyond the Curtain (2015) and Balkans and Beyond (2016), Beyond ’91 – Portrait of the Perestroika Generation (2017), Cafébabel’s third cross-border editorial project embodies how transnational journalism contributes to the creation of a real European public sphere. Following stops in Berlin and Słubice, the best photographs from the project are currently displayed at Philanthropy House in Brussels before moving on to Paris.
Assembled by Cafébabel and hosted by the European Foundation Centre, the exhibition is supported by the European Policy Centre, Connecting Europe, Stiftung Mercator, Advocate Europe, Philanthropy House, Allianz Kulturstiftung, CLB Berlin, Franco-German Youth Office, and n-ost.
Please note due to limited space the debate is by invitation only. Please contact Ilaria Zagaria at IZagaria@efc.be for an invitation.
