@ De Markten / Brussels
The UNREST photo exhibition, presented at the De Markten cultural center in Brussels from September 6th to October 14th, brings together 20 visual stories, inviting us to reflect and provoking in us, the viewers, questions about the volatile state of our world.
This orchestrated interaction between 100 photographs of twelve MAPS photographers explores three central current topics: migration, civil society’s response to social issues and the threat to both humanity and our environment due to human activity.
