Snow/Sand - A Swedish/West Saharan exchange
The Network for a free Western Sahara is behind this exhibition of photographic images depicting the daily lives of young people in Sweden and the Algerian desert.
Many of the young people that today live in the refugee camp outside of Tindouf in Algeria were born and raised in a perpetual state of limbo, waiting to get home to the disputed territory of Western Sahara.
Hope, as the saying goes, is the last to die.
The Swedish youngsters were born in the wake of the 1990s crisis of cut backs and record levels of unemployment - what former Green party MP Gustav Fridolin may call the 'cheated generation'.
They each have a story to tell and they were each given a disposable camera to help tell it.
Price: Free entry
Time: Until June 28th, 12pm - 5pm/4pm
Location: Galleri KG52, Kammakargatan 52
