Exhibition 'Doors to the paradise. Iraqi Kurdistan from another perspective'
From 21th March, visitors in the Collegium cellars will be able to see the new temporary exhibition named ‘Doors to the paradise. Iraqi Kurdistan from another perspective.' The exhibition of photographs made by Joanna Bocheńska presents gates and doors in the houses of citizens of Hawler (Erbil) and Dohuk – two cities in the Kurdistan Region in Iraq. The exhibition will be available until 30th April, daily from 9 a.m. to the nightfall. Free entry.
The ordinary doors, surprising with their colours, form, design and sophistication, may be treated as a metaphor of contemporary reality in Kurdistan, a country in search for its "paradise dream". The exhibition is dedicated to the memory of Edward Walid Said and forms a part of the research project named "How to make a voice be heard? Continuity and transformation of Kurdish culture and society in postcolonial perspective", financially backed by the National Centre of Culture.
