The Chaussee 36 Photo Foundation has collaborated with the Ukrainian Women Photographers Organization to create the group exhibition ‘In the Name of Freedom’. The showcase is conceptualized as a fundraiser, with all proceeds from print sales, drinks and refreshments going to the Berlin-based non-profit ‘Be an Angel’ in support of Ukrainian refugees.
The presented photographs, which are on display from April 2 to May 1, 2022, capture the many facets of a country caught between tradition and modernity. The result is a kaleidoscope of impressions: from young girls of bygone times, glorified grandmothers and yellow-blue dachas, to Soviet buildings, Molotov cocktails and iPhones – to mention but a few. In all their subjectivity, these Ukrainian artists share an intimate, documentary, tragic and surreal vision of a country in flux and now at war.
