CHAUSSEE 36 PHOTO FOUNDATION : Ukrainian Women Photographers Organization – In the Name of Freedom


CHAUSSEE 36 PHOTO FOUNDATION is pleased to present its inaugural fundraiser exhibition In the Name of Freedom in collaboration with the Ukrainian Women Photographers Organization. This exhibition is a fundraiser at its core. The proceeds from sold photographs, drinks and snacks will be directed in full to the Berlin-based Be an Angel Organization, which has been supporting refugees since 2015. In the Name of Freedom responds to the war and puts forward select works from the Ukrainian Women Photographers Organization’s ongoing NFT project. These women photographers have been selling NFT’s to raise funds in aid of victims of the war. Their earnings have been directed towards orphanages, animal shelters, as well as their own photographer’s journeys towards a safe place.

In the Name of Freedom, brings together photographs showcasing diverse faces of a country caught between tradition and modernity. Young girls of bygone times, glorified grandmothers, yellow-blue dachas, Soviet buildings, Molotov cocktails and iPhones to taste: A kaleidoscope of images emerges. In all their subjectivity, these Ukrainian artists give us an intimate, documentary, tragic and surreal vision of a country in flux and now at war.
