Marketa Kutilova for Active Witness Exhibition
Czech photographer Marketa Kutilova and her photograph documenting humanitarian aid in Kongo (organised by People in Need Foundation) will represent the Czech Republic at photography exhibition celebrating the European Year of Volunteering.
AN EXHIBITION OF PHOTOGRAPHY TO CELEBRATE THE EUROPEAN YEAR OF VOLUNTEERING
The exhibition brings together 27 works by photographers representing 27 participating countries, whose work either engages directly with the voluntary sector, or with closely related social issues. The photographers participating in the exhibition come from a range of backgrounds, including photojournalism, fine art and documentary practice, and the selected works cover subjects ranging from homelessness, to displaced populations, social care, rehabilitation and disaster relief.
While many of the photographs relate directly to issues within the European Union, many other photographers from the EU nations have travelled to sites around the world to depict critical events and situations. The aim of the exhibition is not only to illustrate circumstances and issues of concern, but also to raise awareness of the importance of active participation and volunteering as a positive response.
Curated for EUNIC by Simon Baker (curator of photography and international art, Tate), and Ines de Bordas, with support from the cultural attaches of the 27 participating countries, this exhibition includes works by:
Tim Driven (Belgium), Dimitar Dilkoff (Bulgaria), Doros Partisides (Cyprus), Carsten Snejbjerg (Denmark), Katja Tahja (Finland), Lizzie Sadin (France), Tamas Deszo (Hungary), Don McNeill Healy (Ireland), Oliveiero Olivieri (Italy), Janis Salins (Latvia), Raminas Danisevicius (Lithuania), Darrin Zammit Lupi (Malta), Henk Wildschut (Netherlands), Paulo Nunes Dos Santos (Portugal), Dana Popa (Romania), Arne Hodalic (Slovenia), Juan Carlos Tomasi (Spain), Mark Burton (UK).
