South-Sudan : Fractured State, by Dominic Nahr
Opening on 11 March
Exhibition from 11 to 19 March
Celebrating independence in July 2011, South-Sudan, the world’s youngest nation was born. Five years later the UN reported on the desperate situation: 2.5 million people uprooted in fighting that started with a political impasse, more than 50,000 people killed, and nearly 100,000 displaced people living in camps. War, violence, famine, and disease have driven the East African nation into a humanitarian catastrophe.
Swiss photographer Dominic Nahr followed these developments since 2010 on several extensive trips to South Sudan and experienced the dramatic change from hope and joy to horror and despair.
