"Walls between peoples" exhibition
This exhibition invites reflection about the walls that separate people, both physically and mentally. It questions the idea of the Other as ’Unknown’, ’misunderstood’, ’dangerous’, which incites people to build walls so as to distance themselves, to reject the other so that they no longer have to see them. Through the photographs, it invites visitors to discover areas of crisis and deep ideological antagonisms that are amongst the most complex in the world, all represented together for the first time in a single place.
Where and when: Alliance Française from 29 June to 27 July 2011
