Description

Wednesday 4 June is the 25th anniversary of the student uprising on Tiananmen Square, which were brutally suppressed. 2010 Liu Xiaobo is an exhibition about the Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo, who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2010 for his long and non-violent struggle for human rights in China.

The exhibition 2010 Liu Xiaobo tells the story of the only Nobel Peace Prize winner who is currently imprisoned. The exhibition has texts in Chinese, English and Norwegian.

Liu Xiaobo could not come to Oslo to receive the Nobel Peace Prize in 2010. At the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony Liu Xiaobo's chair remained empty. Following the ceremony, the Chinese government censored the phrase "empty chair" on the Chinese internet. The empty chair is central to the exhibition. Visitors can take a picture of themselves with the empty chair and use #FreeLiu on Instagram and Twitter, and in that way support the fight to release Liu Xiaobo.

Liu Xiaobo is one of many laureates who have been persecuted and imprisoned for their cause. In the exhibition, visitors can also get to know other laureates who have been deprived of their liberty, including Carl von Ossietzky, Martin Luther King jr., Andrei Sakharov, Nelson Mandela and Aung San Suu Kyi.
