20.09.2023 • From 8 September to 15 October, 2023, OPEN YOUR EYES is presenting a festival of creative photography for the people of Zurich – as a plea for understanding of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations. Themed upon ‘stop. think. feel. act.’, the festival invites guests to pause for a moment, reflect and feel the magic.

This is where world-class photography meets world-​class science – to create an entirely new communication format. To this end, Open Your Eyes, ETH Zurich and The Photo Society (TPS), an association of more than 200 National Geographic photographers, have created large-scale open-air installations in the parks, streets and squares of Zurich.

20.09.2023 • Be Her Voice – 16 September, 2022, was the one year anniversary of the death of Iranian student Mahsa Amini. The two photos presented here on GoSee.News were shot by Matteo BERTOLIO c/o VISUALEYES ARTISTS and were on display at an exhibition in Milan. Giving cause to the exhibition are the horrific conditions that continue to exist in Iran. Women are increasingly exposed to repressive measures in the Islamic republic.

Jina Masha Amini was brutally murdered in police custody – the reason for her arrest : She allegedly violated the country’s headscarf law. This was followed by nationwide protests. The regime reacted with a vicious crackdown, and thousands of Iranian women were arrested and are still being put into prison as a consequence.

The first name Jina means ‘life’, a word etymologically related to the Kurdish words for ‘woman’ (Jin) and ‘freedom’ (Jiyan) with which it shares a common root. Echoing this is he originally Kurdish, then Pan-Iranian chant of protest ‘Woman, Life, Freedom’ (Kurdish ‘Jin, Jiyan, Azadî’).

On the first anniversary commemorating the violent death of Jina...
