In 2015 Kontinent Agency began its Cultural program. Designed to go beyond the published image, Kontinent Culture is a platform for exhibitions, workshops and lectures.

Through our exhibitions program, it is hoped that a wider audience will gain a deeper understanding of stories in need of all our attention. Kontinent Culture offers a range of photographic exhibitions to museums, galleries, organisations and institutions worldwide.

Kontinent, an independent photo agency, run by its photographers, stands by its founding principle of giving a voice to the voiceless.

Syria

By Niclas Hammarström

 

The exhibition ‘Syria’ depicts the impact of the conflict in Syria between 2012 and 2013. During several visits to Syria, Hammarström documented the suffering of civilians and the country’s decline. Without endeavouring to veil the harsh reality, Hammarström’s photographs capture the truths of a civil war, which has led to the largest displacement of people in our times.

Children Having Children

By Linda Forsell

 

The exhibition ‘Children Having Children’ aims to raise awareness of gender-based violence in order to eliminate all violence against girls/women. During 2014, Linda Forsell, travelled to Guatemala to document the harsh reality faced by young girls having children. In a country with strict abortion laws, 5,100 girls between the ages of 10 and 14, gave birth as a result of rape in 2013. ‘Children Having Children’ creates a powerful platform for debate on the greater structure behind gender inequality, the rights of children, and the significance of reproductive health.

Flykt

By Anders Hansson

 

There are now more than 60 million people seeking refuge worldwide. Award-winning photojournalist Anders Hansson has for over a decade documented their lives. His images from the refugee camps of the Congo to Afghanistan, Syria, Serbia and Lebanon show us  the daily lives of those who have been forced to abandon the place they call 'home'.
The exhibition Flykt attempts to bring a greater awareness to the public of the realities faced by millions of refugees every day and is the result of the publication of the book 'Flykt' published in collaboration with the Red Cross.
