Wednesday, 4 June is the 25th anniversary of the massacre in Beijing's Tiananmen Square. This week the Nobel Peace Center opens an exhibition on the Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo, who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2010 for his long-standing, non-violent advocacy of human rights in China.
What do the PM's selfie, digital surveillance, checking Facebook before you get out of bed, the Nobel Peace Prize laureate Liu Xiaobo and the Arab Spring all have in common? You will find the answer at the Nobel Peace Center's latest exhibition, Be Democracy.
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”.
