Exhibition spotlights the reality of War in Cities

War in Cities brings into perspective the lived experiences of those caught in urban warfare.

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is presenting the touring exhibition War in Cities to highlight the impacts of urban warfare through the display of everyday items.

In 2017, items, including a dust-covered teddy bear and a distorted bike wheel, were collected by ICRC colleagues in Iraq’s war-torn cities, with the authorisation of their owners or the local community. The exhibition was first shown in Geneva, Switzerland, and also travelled to Manila, Philippines in 2022.
