GoEast is happy to be presenting a photography exhibition on the peaceful
revolution in the Ukraine in the Bellevue Room during the week of the
festival. After having been exhibited at the European Parliament and the
Ukranian Embassy in Berlin, these suggestive photos will now serve to
remind goEast’s public of those exciting and moving days, which
most people probably followed on the news. They were days that changed
the country. The “Revolution in Orange” not only led to a
shift of power in the Ukraine; it also brought forth a new people. If
in the past Ukrainians had seemed handicapped by the power structures
in their country, they now poured into Majdan- independence square- by
the thousands. They were saying “no” to election fraud, shadow
economy, the black market, corruption and organized crime.
This exhibition shows the work of five photographers who were present
at the “Revolution in Orange”: Sergej Grebenjuk is a free-lance
photographer. Edward Galagan is a photo artist in a design studio. Pvlo
Terechow, Josef Ziwenki and Natalija Krawtschuk work as photographers
for the magazine “Korrespondent”.
Exhibition: 06.04. to 12.04., 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
