Dhaka, Mar 3 (UNB) - A photography exhibition ‘Red Utopia’ by Dutch photographer Jan Banning was inaugurated on Sunday at Drik Gallery in Panthapath as part of the tenth edition of Chobi Mela.
The most prestigious photography festival in Asia began on February 28 in the city.
Curator ASM Rezaur Rahman was in conversation with the artist and provided the context to the audience.
The exhibition is based on photographs from five countries (India, Italy, Nepal, Portugal and Russia) where communism still survives and dominates local mindsets.
‘Red Utopia’ looks at various corners of the world, where the ideology that so determined the course of the twentieth century is still alive and kicking.
