Expositie | Framing the War

100 days of war in Ukraine in photos and cartoons.
The war in Ukraine has been a media war from day one. Citizens, media, governments and press services create and disseminate news and images to inform others from their own agenda. Ukrainian and foreign journalists are making efforts to report on the war independently and objectively. In Russia, there is no more room for independent journalism and the state has almost complete control over the media.

Framing the War portrays the first hundred days of the war through the lens of international news photographers and through the pen of international cartoonists. The documentary photography and satirical cartoons combined to paint a unique picture of the conflict. They invite you as a visitor to take a critical look at coverage of the war: what do I know and what do I see, and how important and how influential are the makers of the images?
