Documenting Myanmar: Showcasing Burmese photographs, Short films and Artist-modified Images

Why We Recommend it

Documenting Myanmar is a non-profit exhibition revolving around the theme of the power and subjectivity of the documentary.


Mainly based on photographs, films and projections, Documenting Myanmar reflects the current complex situation in the country. It combines reports from the Rohingya crisis alongside those showing daily life in Myanmar.

The exhibition aims at highlighting the status of photographic documents in the making of history as well as in the building of an identity, and opening a dialogue between current photojournalism and artistic intervention on archival material.

Themes explored include the struggles and hopes of the Burmese people, and their heroes from the Anglo-Burmese Wars, and the future of the youth.

The exhibit aims to raise important questions on how present day Burma is being documented and will be remembered.

Documenting Myanmar is put on in support of a charity with a mission to provide Burmese children with education via mobile classrooms.
