“We are privileged that Paul Seawright has decided to share his recent work on the reconciliation within Rwanda with Belfast Exposed. Following the shocking genocide in Rwanda, the government’s creative Cow for Peace programme, created to bring its broken communities together, is one that can inspire communities across the world.” – Deirdre Robb, Chief Executive. Belfast Exposed

Belfast Exposed presents 'Beasts of Burden’ where Paul Seawright turns his attention to Rwanda. In the Rwandan genocide of 1994, members of the Hutu ethnic majority murdered an estimated one million people, mostly of the Tutsi minority in just 100 days. 25 years later a distinctive project, “Cows for Peace”, pairs perpetrators with their victims. Seawright’s images examine what is invisible within this space: the tension of the place but also the delicate nature of the caretakers when working with these animals.
