Learn The Truth About What Is Going On

During several years we have been observing the devastating consequences of the civil war in Syria. A terrible conflict which broke out in 2011 turned the country into ruins with a horrific number of victims and dividing the society into different factions. Late last year similar events (in regard to civil war mechanism) took place in Ukraine. The bloody collisions on the Maidan Nezalezhnosti (The Independence Squ are) in Kiev resulted in an upsurge of nationalists-banderovtsy groups on the ground who where the main force behind the overthrow of the last president. This uprising could not be ignored by the Eastern parts of Ukraine, which are mostly populated with Russian-speaking people. The civil war in Ukraine has not finished yet and its daily events are a stark reminder of the pain caused in the middle of Europe. But what will happen now to Ukraine due to the ongoing fighting in the East? What will happen to Crimea? And will this conflict have the same devastating impact like the War in Yugoslavia, which was also massively fueled by outside benefactors of the war. To all these questions the current exhibition “Material Evidence” tries to give answers. It brings together concerned Journalists who went into the midst of the military conflicts, thus risking their own lives to show also the “other” side of these wars and conflicts, often neglected by the western media. To Damascus and its destroyed suburbs; Kiev, Kharkov, Simferopol, Sevastopol. They worked in these dangerous spots, preserving for the history the unique evidences of the dramatic events taking place there.
