It is a great pleasure for us to announce the opening of Afghan Tales in Nikolaj Kunsthal, one of Copenhagen’s leading exhibition venues for contemporary art. The exhibition opened yesterday with more than 300 guests attending and opening speaches by director Elisabeth Delin Hansen and exhibiting photographer Basir Seerat. Afghan Tales presents the work of more than 20 contemporary Afghan photographers, offering an intimate and surprising meeting with a different and more diverse kind of Afghanistan than is normally showed. Seeing Afghanistan through the eyes of Afghan photographers enables a rarely achieved intimate presence in moments, processes, and conflicts in both public and private spheres, bringing a sensitivity to the significance of everyday life and the conditions formative to their strategies and events. The exhibition is open to the public until January 18th, 2015.
