The award winning American photographer Lynsey Addario and the BBC World’s chief correspondent Lyse Doucet will together with the Nobel Peace Center create the Nobel Peace Prize exhibition 2014 on Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi.
On the second Friday in October every year, the eyes of the world turn to Oslo. As the Nobel Peace Prize is announced at the Nobel Institute, preparations for the Peace Prize Exhibition are kicked off. This has been the tradition since the very first Nobel Peace Prize exhibition was launched at the Nobel Peace Center in 2005. Nine Nobel Peace Prize exhibitions has been made and presented at the Nobel Peace Center, and the tenth exhibition is under production. It’s time to look at the highlights from all the Nobel Peace Prize exhibitions.
In the small exhibition See what I mean?, children from around the world express themselves on topics like school, society and experiences – in good and bad times. The exhibition is made in cooperation with The International Museum of Children's Art.
In the ninth consecutive Nobel Peace Prize Exhibition, the audience for the first time gets to experience how the OPCW inspectors monitor, identify and destroy chemical weapons. This year's photographer is the world renowned Paolo Pellegrin from the photo agency Magnum Photos.
Paolo Pellegrin has followed the inspectors closely in the weeks after it was announced that The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical (OPCW) is awarded the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize. With American war correspondent and writer Scott Anderson's short texts, Pellegrin's graphic and strong black and white images provide a rare insight into the daily lives of the weapon inspectors.
In his testament from 1895 Alfred Nobel instructs the executors of the will to give the Peace Prize “to the person who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses”.
