July 27, 2013 / Exhibition: In Visible Borders
The Military Museums, CALGARY, CANADA
In Visible Borders is an exhibition that explores through photography the idea of borders, visible and invisible, armed and unarmed. This installation compares two perspectives a world apart: the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), the border between North and South Korea, and Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, a border between Canada and the United States and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Waterton-Glacier is the world’s first international peace park. Rotary Club members from Alberta and Montana proposed the idea in 1931. The Peace Park was established in 1932. Now, each year, members of Rotary Clubs join hands across the border. In the past eighty years, peace parks have been created along borders in Europe, Africa and Central and South America.
