The exhibition “The Future of Belarus, Fueled by Women” has opened in Vilnius. Lithuanians will be able to see the Belarusian women’s protest, shot by five photojournalists: Iryna Arakhouskaya, Nadzeya Buzhan, Darya Burakina, Vialeta Sauchyts and Volha Shukaila.
The main protagonists of the exhibition are women who have set the tone for peaceful protest in Belarus. The exhibition will be open on February 19 at 18:00, and will operate every day until March 4. Photographs will be projected on the walls of the largest museum of modern art in Vilnius, MO, after sunset.
The photographs give viewers a chance to feel the contrast between the peaceful confrontation of Belarusian women with flowers in their hands and the blatant and unconcealed violence by security forces that followed the August 9, 2020 elections in Belarus.
