Staying Alive – Documenting the Uganda Cancer Institute


‘Staying Alive’ is the title of an exhibition and of the 7th book in the Ebifananyi series. It presents photographic documentation of the Uganda Cancer Institute from remote and more recent pasts. The Institute, which has been the major cancer research and treatment facility in the Great Lakes region, celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. While part of its reputation was/is that it is a place where people (are sent to) die, the aim is of course to keep them alive and develop knowledge about the disease that caught them.

This exhibition hopes to contribute to the image of the place that was and is. It wants to celebrate the people that for shorter or longer periods of their lives lived or worked there. Ebifananyi 7 will be for sale at the exhibition.

The exhibition can be visited daily between 9am and 6pm until Saturday the 26th of August 2017.
