From February 25 till March 5 Gori Photographers Club, Fabrika, and Magnolia Film Lab will organize the War Photography exhibition within Re-Source Ukraine Project in Gori.
The Re-Source Ukraine project aims to support Ukrainian artists and creators who left their own country due to the current situation and moved to other European countries. Together with six other participant countries, Fabrika will host various events throughout the year.
The primary event of the project is the Month of Ukraine, to mark the one year since the start of the war. The series of events scheduled in these cultural centers from February 24 to March 24 aims to bring Ukrainian and local artists to represent their work in workshops, film screenings, exhibitions, concerts, and more.
Since the Month of Ukraine marks one year, we decided it would be very symbolic and emotional to host a War Photography exhibition showcasing the 2008 Russia-Georgia and 2022 Russia-Ukraine wars shot by local and Ukrainian photographers in Gori – the city that was bombed back in 2008.
The exhibition will be held at Art House, a Soviet architectural building that was supposed to be a museum of maquettes of all the fortresses we have in Georgia. However, the museum never managed to be active. The building was used for various purposes until it was abandoned at the end of the 1990s.
