The Rainbow Revolution in Ukraine

In Ukraine, LGBTQ has become a topic thats splits the country. After the Maidan revolution in 2014, more people have been killed because of their sexual orientation. We followed the PRIDE-parade in Kiev, where ultra nationalists armed with fighting gloves and quotes from the bible, tried to attack the march, but ended up being surrounded by the police.

Several thousand police, soldiers and national guards protected the march.

The Internet Warriors – the exhibition

The exhibition consist of 12 pictures measuring 1 by 1 meter out on wooden stands, and two containers decorated as the living rooms of typical Internet Warriors.

The goal with the exhibition was to create a space where the views could experience a typical living room from an internet warriors see that they are not so different from you and I, that people who are expressing hatred online hare normal human beings as well.

An estimated 5000 people visited the exhibition during the two weeks in march and spent time looking at the pictures, reading the text and experiencing the containers.
