Conversation with Pamela Bożek, Yeva Hovsepyan, Agata Kubis, Paweł Mościcki. Moderated by Karolina Gembara.

Images from the border. People, cold, despair, hope, golden NRC foils, children in overalls. What can we learn from these few photographs from the forest? What do the recordings shot with shaking hands say? How to look at the official reports from Belarus? What can’t you see in a state of emergency zone? _ The talk will try to find answers to these questions. It will be possible to reflect together on the visibility of people who came to our part of the world hoping for peace and security now and in the past. Speakers will include people who photograph rescue operations in the forest, who work with refugee women, who write about the representation of refugees and, finally, who use their own experience of flight to reassemble the image of the refugee in our minds. After the meeting, the gallery invites you to a new art and culinary space run at Zachęta by artist Pamela Bożek and the Słuszna Strawa collective.
