On Monday, November 9, Kristian Skeie will open Webster’s Centennial Speaker Series - Open Wounds: A Century of Crimes against Humanity, with a presentation of his photographic stories: “Life After Genocide.”
Kristian Skeie, a Webster Geneva faculty member and photographer, will give an introductory lecture on his photographic exploration on what it means to survive genocide. He will share some of the individual stories he collected first hand from survivors of the massacres of Srebrenica in Bosnia and against the Tutsi in Rwanda.
Two photographs from the exhibit will be offered for auction in order to support a humanitarian initiative that can help survivors. The Webster Humanitarian Association (a registered non-governmental organization) and Ibuka Suisse (Rwanda survivor organisation) in Rwanda are facilitating this fundraising effort.
The photographs will stay on display until Thursday, November 12 in the LLC Commons Room at Webster University Geneva.
The event is free and open to the public.
