Part art exhibition, part discussion event, "We shout and shout, but no one listens: Art from conflict zones" brings together ten artists and thinkers from around the globe to explore the leading cause of displacement: war.

Taking its starting point in a number of contemporary and recent conflicts that have been ignored by the international community, the exhibition presents installation, photography, painting, readymade, collage, and performance that examine war from the perspective of those trapped in or fleeing zones of conflict.

The discussion event "War images: How to show that black lives matter" that accompanies the exhibition on March 5 will debate what has caused indifference to certain of the world’s conflicts and victims, and what role visual representation plays in this.
