    Photos by Czeslaw Czaplinski

    Photo exhibition on Andrzej Wajda, recently deceased Polish film director. Wajda is considered one of Poland’s greatest directors, who over his long career received an honorary Oscar and Palme d’Or. Many of his films were inspired by turbulent wartime and communist history.

    Although well known in Poland, Andrzej Wajda is not equally known in Europe and the exhibition would therefore aim at making its work and life known to a wider public. The photos were taken by Czeslaw Czaplinski, world-renowned artist photographer, journalist and documentary film maker.

    The exhibition will run from 21 December 2016 to 31 January 2017 – closing event on 25 January 2017.

     

    Venue: EESC – JDE building,
    rue Belliard 99 – 6th floor – Foyer 6

    Monday to Thursday: 9 a.m. – 5.30 p.m. and Friday: 8.30 a.m. – 3.30 p.m

    The exhibition focuses on an accessible society for autistic persons. Pictures were taken by three photographers from the UK, Poland and Luxembourg, all aiming to help people understand what accessibility means for autistic persons and what kind of obstacles they face in their everyday life. Ultimately, the exhibition also aims at celebrating human diversity and at triggering a reflection on how to create the conditions for better inclusion for all in our community.

    Photographs: Graham Miller, Michał Awin and André Weisgerber
