“Where there is a War, there is still Life”
In these very disturbing times for Afghanistan, we are opening a very special photo exhibition, presenting 46 photos from 27 Afghan photographers/photojournalists under the title: “Where there is a War, there is still Life”. The exhibition shows a wide range of examples of how life has been in Afghanistan during the last 20 years, a life that is now under severe threat. It was organized by Afghan Photographers Association (APA) months before the last events. However, we feel that it still communicates a strong message of humanity and freedom to the outside world as well as the need for a peaceful and just solution to the current crisis.
The exhibition will be opened at 2 pm 25th August by the Norwegian State Secretary from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Jens Frølich Holte, followed by the Afghan Ambassador, his Excellency Mr. Youssof Ghafoorzai. Other speakers are Rector Nina Waaler at OsloMet, and Knut Olav Åmås, Director of the Free Expression foundation. Open for the public from 1530 pm.
