“Chronicles of the Unknown Superheroes/Ukrainians” is exhibited again in Geneva

“Chronicles of the Unknown Superheroes Ukrainians” is a traveling media project of the B50 community that tells the story of an ordinary day of Ukrainian volunteers. The series of posters depicts B50 activists helping to clean up the aftermath of the russian invasion in Kyiv region and repairing a bomb shelter in a children’s educational institution.

We are sharing our story to popularize the volunteer movement, particularly abroad, to inspire people by our own example and to demonstrate how we can and should help each other in difficult times. We also want to show the scale and devastating consequences of russia’s military aggression against Ukraine.

The opening of Chronicles of the Unknown Superheroes Ukrainians took place in the fall of 2023 in Tbilisi, Georgia. Since then, our media project has traveled to Geneva (Switzerland), Alytus and Vilnius (Lithuania), Budapest (Hungary), and Copenhagen (Denmark). Currently, our photo exhibition is visiting Hamburg (Germany) and is returning to Geneva!

This spring, Chronicles of the Unknown Superheroes Ukrainians will be part of two exhibitions in Geneva. This opportunity is thanks, as before, to B50 Friend Stanislav Hrytsan.

Our exhibition was part of the program of the Photo Genève Festival 2024, which aims to revitalize and popularize photography.

During the festival, photographers are invited to present various aspects of their art at exhibitions, screenings, competitions, conferences and free roundtables. Internships and portfolio readings are also planned.

“Chronicles of the Unknown Superheroes Ukrainians” will be presented at the festival by our partner Webster Geneva Campus, which is hosting the event.

The festival will feature photographs by photographers Dima Badahos, Ivan Yershov, Iryna Rehesha, and Nataliia Hryniuk. Their pictures are combined to chronicle an ordinary day of B50 volunteers who, despite the constant threat of shelling, physical fatigue and numerous stresses, help others and do their best to restore destroyed villages and towns.

After the photo festival is over, Webster University invites its students to see “Chronicles of the Unknown Superheroes Ukrainians” as well. Therefore, the B50 Exhibition for Webster Community will move to the gallery of the university’s photography club and will be available to university visitors from April 29 to May 3.

The B50 community is proud of its volunteers and the fact that their tireless work will once again be seen in Europe. We are also glad that our photo story is valuable not only for its meaning, but also for the quality of the photos, which were evaluated by specialized experts and added to the photo festival. We thank the B50 photographers for their professionalism and caring!
