Mahatma Gandhi’s non-violence philosophy and work made him one of history’s strongest symbols of peace. Despite the fact that he was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize several times, he was never awarded the prize. In a unique exhibition India and Gandhi are captured through the camera lens of legendary photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson. Cartier-Bresson met Gandhi the same day he was shot, and documented India in grief after the spiritual leader’s death.

Photographs, films, texts and interactive installations give the audience a chance to know the man who has been a great inspiration to several Peace Prize laureates. A short film produced for the exhibition highlights why Gandhi never was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

The exhibition is presented in cooperation with Magnum Photos.
