The Norwegian Helsinki Committee
Commemoration of the war in Ukraine - exhibition and events

2023 February Utstilling NOK 100 000

‘Ukraine’s struggle for freedom’ at the Albin Upp Gallery in Oslo marks one year since a full-scale invasion was mounted on 24 February 2022.

The war in Ukraine has cast long shadows. This is evident from the photographs, drawings and other works of art featured in the exhibition ‘Ukraine’s Struggle for Freedom’, which has been on display at the Albin Upp Gallery in Oslo since February 2023.
The works include portraits of murdered Ukrainian civilians by the cartoonist Victor Melamed and photographs by Oleksandr Klymenko, who visited the exhibition on 18 February, and Evgeniy Maloletka, one of the winners of the Free Media Awards 2022. “On the anniversary of the war, we want to organise a talk about Ukraine’s situation over the past 10 years, before the large-scale celebration at Eidsvolls plass on Friday afternoon,” says Dag Andreas Fedøy, director of communications at the Norwegian Helsinki Committee.
The Norwegian Helsinki Committee is sponsoring the exhibition, together with Media Initiative for Human Rights (MIHR), Norwegian People’s Aid, the Wergeland Centre, the FRI Association, Oslo Pride, KS, Ukrainett and NIBR/Oslo Met.
