STANDING GUIDES – A guided tour of the exhibition “Imagine, Reflections on Peace” – This exhibition explores the conditions and consequences of peace in post conflict societies in Lebanon, Northern Ireland, Bosnia, Rwanda, Cambodia, and Colombia. Eight leading photographers and journalists of war returned to those countries where they first reported during conflict, and examine what lessons can be learned from the peace that was brokered in these nations.

A DRINK – At L’Ascenseur, Géopolis’ new radio café, at 5 minutes walking distance from the exhibition.
Geopolis, center for photojournalism, presents the exhibition “Imagine: reflections on peace”.
Imagine, Reflections on Peace, brings together a selection of powerful images and poignant texts that offer a unique and fascinating insight in the history of peace, or rather in the personal experiences of those who experienced the transition to peace, and aptly express the unique way in which societies and individuals recover after having lived in a context of extreme brutality.
