Initiated in March 2020 by Barbara Duriau, the 3 million member Facebook group View from my window collects intimate and collective testimonies from millions of confined people around the world. At the Atomium, from March 24th, the temporary exhibition "View from my window" gathers a selection of more than 400 photographs among the 200,000 images from this Belgian success story with a worldwide echo.
From New York to Moscow, Brussels, Sao Paulo or Darjeeling... Every day, from their window, the members of this 2.0 community capture and share their view.
The exhibition "View from my window" translates a human experience and offers a sensitive and poetic dive into the intimacy of all those who have gone through this very special event. The exhibition, which is based on audio-visual installations, prints, webcams and time-lapses, gives a playful attention to the visit.
Ordinary or breathtaking, each photo is accompanied by a simple caption or a powerful life story.
Through this exhibition, the Atomium is delighted to dedicate its spaces and its exceptional panorama of the Belgian capital, the cradle of Europe, to a humanist project conceived as a powerful invitation to share and travel.
When one door closes, many windows open!
