Evenings with Reporters: Poles and Czechs 30 Years Later / Beyond Borders

  • Where: Václav Havel Library, Ostrovní 13, Prague 110 00
  • When: December 3, 2019, 19:00 – 21:00

The fall of the Iron Curtain opened up borders. But do we actually observe the world, or do we travel merely for experiences? The media, internet and social networks deliver thousands of images a minute from far-flung parts. We are overwhelmed by reports about refugees, military conflicts and revolutions and photos of natural disasters. How close is solidarity to indifference? Thirty years after our countries won their freedom back, two photo reporters will discuss their experiences of regions that are still awaiting that happy moment.   

Guests: Alžběta Jungrová and Kuba Kamiński, winner of the National Geographic Photo Contest and Grand Press Photo, who has worked in Belarus, China and Crimea following Russian annexation. 

The debate will take place in Polish and Czech with interpretation from and into both languages.

Organised by the Václav Havel Library and the Polish Institute in Prague with the support of the Czech-Polish Forum at the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
