Crimes against peace
To support journalists all around the world who are ready to prepare unique and truthful material about the situation in the countries which go through the civil conflict.
Recent decades the world community has been facing new distorted rules of democracy imposed by political dictators. The establishment of democracy should lead to reduction of conflicts and confrontations. However, many countries unwittingly involved in a complicated game become victims of geopolitical aggression. The result of that game we can now see in Syria, Iraq and Ukraine.
The Art-project «Material Evidence» announces a grant for journalists «Journalistic Truth». Any journalist, who doesn`t want to stay indifferent to the fate of the countries involved in international conflicts, are welcome to take part.
Over last few years, we have been observing the disastrous consequences of the civil war in Syria. A terrible conflict deployed in the year 2011 turned the country into ruins taking many lives and divided the society into opposing groups. At the end of the last year, the same happened in Ukraine. What really happened in Kiev and Crimea and what awaits Ukraine? Who benefits from the war in Syria, and what happened to this country? The exhibition «Material Evidence» gives answers to all these questions. It was prepared by not indifferent journalists, who risking their lives had visited hot spots in military conflicts. The project successfully performed in such countries as Germany, Russia and Belgium.
