Over my Eyes: Stories of Iraq
The photographic exhibition, titled "Over my Eyes: Stories of Iraq", which has just been showed at DOX Centre for Contemporary Art in Prague for the first time, offers an unfamiliar perspective of Iraq, which we normally perceive through public media images in a very limited way.
Through the eyes of a young generation of local photographers the project presents less frequently captured fragments of reality that comprise the daily life in the country. In terms of photography research, it is extremely important, as it introduces to our understanding the "non-exoticism" and "non-colonialism" approach, which are otherwise so often implemented in Western research of world photography. The exhibition will be adapted according to the specific space of the Jakopič Gallery.
