„Revolution in Orange“

A Photographic Exhibition About Ukraine’s Peaceful Revolution

After it could be seen in the European Parliament and in the Ukrainian embassy in Berlin, this exhibition of suggestive photographs will now remind audiences at goEast of the moving events that many have observed on the television-news. The “Orange Revolution” did not just cause a change of leadership in the Ukraine; it also created new Ukrainian citizens. Before, Ukrainians seemed paralyzed by their country’s power-structure – but now hundred thousands filled the Majdan, the square of independence. They said no to election-fraud, the shadow-economy, the black market, corruption and organized crime. Thousands took to the street of the snowed in country, camped in tents during sub-zero temperatures on the Kreschtschatik Boulevard, blockaded government-buildings and the presidential palace – for justice, democracy and closer ties with the EU.

goEast presents the exhibition „Orange Revolution“ from April 6 to April 12 at the Bellevue-Saal in the Wilhelmstrasse 32 in Wiesbaden, from 10am to 6pm. (during Symposium-events, see program pages 6-8, the exhibition is closed)

The exhibition shows images by five photographers who documented the events:
