Exhibition: Five Roads Back Home (Brussels)

23–28 February


The Art Thema Gallery, 51 Rue de la Madeleine, 1000 Brussels

(Private view on 22 February: email: jonathan.lukas@teas.eu for details)

This exhibition commemorates the 25th anniversary of the Khojaly Massacre, which took place on 26 February, claiming the lives of 613 Azerbaijani civilians. This was the worst single atrocity of the unresolved Armenian–Azerbaijani conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh.

Taken by leading photographer Philipp Rathmer, the exhibition comprises portraits of some of the internally displaced persons (IDPs) who are the ongoing victims of the Armenian occupation. Photographed against a black backdrop, these stark portraits tell an emotional story.
