Nachklang – Georgia one year after the war

September 21, 2010

The South Caucasus Regional Office of the Heinrich Boell Foundation and Europe House Georgia organized the photo exhibition entitled: “Nachklang – Georgia one year after the war” by the photographer Uwe Schober.

The event took place within the framework of the project “Internally Displaced Persons – public discussions” run by the Heinrich Boell Foundation.

The opening of the exhibition took place at Europe House Georgia on the 27th of September at 19:00 until the 30th of September 2010.  
Address: 1, Freedom Square, 2nd floor.

Through a series of decidedly allegorical and metaphorical compositions that present the stories of children, men and women, communities affected by armed conflict Uwe Schober is showing Georgia as a country working to overcome the after-effects of the war, a country more than even struggling to accommodate its people dislocated by regional politics and changing relationship with the west. 

The concept of the “Nachklang” series is to create composites consisting of one image taken in August 2008 and one image a year later at the same location, and – in sense – by combining the two images and collapsing them into one frame stripping off the dimension of time and leaving the continuum of space.
