Exhibit at the UN Palais des Nations, Geneva

Lienslazos à l'ONU

Organized by the Permanent Mission of Nicaragua to the United Nations with the United Nations Office at Geneva.

The exhibition will be on display at the Communal Space, E Building, 3rd Floor – Door 40. From 24 October to 9 November 2017.

The exhibition LiensLazos by the Nicaraguan artist+photographer Iara Vega Linhares aim to describe trough images the lasting relationships between peoples in San Marcos, Nicaragua and Biel/Bienne, Switzerland since 1986, when a group of young Biennois travelled to Nicaragua in order to collaborate and live with local communities. The various portraits recorded by the photographer bear witness to the connections of solidarity and affection between people from the two cities, despite being distant geographically and in their daily realities. As such, the photos show contrast, but also bring closer these two “universes”.

The exhibition’s inauguration was solemnly open with the words of mister Michael Møller, Director-General of the United Nations Office in Geneva and the Ambassador of Nicaragua in Switzerland and representative of Nicaragua to the UN, Hernan Estrada Roman.
