The exhibition shows a wide range of examples of how life has been in Afghanistan during the last 20 years, a life that is now under severe threat. It was organized by Afghan Photographers Association (APA) months before the last events.

The exhibition will be opened at 2 pm 25th August by the Norwegian State Secretary from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Jens Frølich Holte, followed by the Afghan Ambassador, his Excellency Mr. Youssof Ghafoorzai. Other speakers are Rector Nina Waaler at OsloMet, and Knut Olav Åmås, Director of the Free Expression foundation. Open for the public from 1530 pm.
