The multimedia exhibition “Invisible Lives” tells about five different personalities representing the Latvian Association of the Blind. The community of the blind in Cēsis has existed for several decades. The exhibition reveals the daily life of its representatives through the eyes of a photographer, approaching their lives in intimate, documentary, metaphorical, sometimes poetic and, in all cases, life-affirming stories. The exhibition is complemented by a soundtrack - recordings of people's favorite sounds and excerpts from interviews. In order to make what is visible also available to the characters of the exhibition, it is adapted for visually impaired people with prepared audio comments.
The exhibition "Invisible Lives" has been created within the framework of the project "Invisible Lives" funded by the Creative Europe Program "Culture". The project is implemented by the Rucka Art Foundation in cooperation with Kulturanova (Serbia) and Art365 (Montenegro) and aims to tell the stories of marginalized groups from different societies in collaboration with artists from three countries. The works for the exhibition have been created by photographers Boris Abramović (RS), Elīne Buka (LV), Irena Čučković (RS), Aleksandra Drečun (ME), Paulis Jakušonoks (LV), Sara Kecman (RS), Stefan Kosanovis (RS), Monta Krūze (LV), Duško Miljanić (ME), Ana Mitrović (ME), Darko Sretic (RS), Eva Strazdiņa (LV), Nada Vojinović (ME), Nicole Lee Zvaigzne (LV), Miloš Zvicer (ME), Curator - Līga Lindenbauma.
