Description. The project was implemented within the “German Weeks in Armenia”.
During the 14 days of the project hosted the German artist Harald Schluttig, author of documentary films, and a photojournalist expressed his interest and desire to organize an exhibition in Gyumri where he would get the chance to present the photos taken in Kabul, Afghanistan.
