Exhibition “Bangladesh 1971: Mourning and Morning” at the Liberation War Museum, Dhaka, Bangladesh
50 years after Marc Riboud photographed Bangladesh, at the time the country became independent, 50 prints are exhibited at the Liberation War Museum in Dhaka, with the support of Alliance française de Dhaka and the French Embassy in Bangladesh.
Arriving in Kolkata early November 1971, Marc Riboud photographed the refugee camps, the demonstrations for Bangladesh’s independence, before being embedded with a column of the Indian army. Witness of the decisive Jamalpur battle, he was among the first to reach Dhaka.
A research lead with Mofidul Hoque, co-curator for the Liberation War Museum, allowed to read this reportage in depth and to present the photographs, now historical documents, in their context.
Adress: Liberation War Museum, Plot F 11/A and F 11/B, Ser-e-Bangla Nagar, Civic Centre, Agargaon, Dhaka 1207
Open from 10am to 5pm, every day except Sunday.
