The exhibition consists of a selection of photographs by Fabio Bucciarelli, Manu Brabo and Guillem Valle, members of the photo-journalism collective ME-MO
On February the 13th last the Sala Project of the Blueproject Foundation inaugurated an exhibition entitled Bukra Inshallah. The Libyan War, the first exclusively photographic exhibition organised by the arts centre, which opened in September 2013.
The exhibition consists of a selection of pieces by three photographers, all of whom are members of ME-MO, a photo-journalist’s collective with international recognition. Italian Fabio Bucciarelli, Spanish Manu Brabo and Catalan Guillem Valle, winners of the Robert Capa Gold medal, the Pulitzer Prize for photography and the World Press Photo awards, present a selection of their photographs taken during the Libyan conflict.
Since the 16th of February, 2011, when the first revolts against Muammar al-Gaddafi began, and despite a change in government, the country is still a no-man’s land and, even today, four years after the beginning of the conflict, militias and Islamic groups are still fighting amongst themselves for territorial control. The title of the exhibition is inspired by the rebel slogan which has become a byword for the conflict itself: Bukra Inshallah (Tomorrow, God willing).
The exhibition also serves as a platform for the presentation of the first edition of the ME-MO magazine, which includes a number of photographic projects and which can also be purchased via the collective’s website.
