Humanitarian crises around the world make news headlines everyday. The images associated with these tragedies are often related to tears, suffering, hunger, desperation, loneliness, separation, desolation, etc. ”Humanitarian Principles. Here and Now” is an art installation which resulted from a concept developed by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), in conversation with Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). The goal of the exhibition is to provide a space for discussion and debate about the humanitarian sphere, and how it is changing. The organizers have given a carte blanche to ten Swiss photographers to reflect on and illustrate the Humanitarian Principles that are central to humanitarian action.
In cooperation with the Embassy of Switzerland in Poland.
