What is Broken Chair? Why does it face the United Nations building? This exhibition of photographs followed the story of Broken Chair from 1997 till today. Handicap International’s Broken Chair maintains a precarious balance on three legs, the fourth having been violently blown off as if by an explosive blast. It symbolises the victims supported by Handicap International who have been mutilated as a result of the brutalities of war. It is a way of showing how these people stand with their dignity intact – vulnerable, yet strong.
