Diese Veranstaltung in Berlin wird die zeitgenössische ukrainische Kunst in einem umfassenden Rahmen widerspiegeln. Pünktlich zum Jahrestag des russischen Einmarsches in die Ukraine wird Art-Weapon die ganze Bandbreite der während des Krieges entstandenen Kultur unserer Musiker*innen, Maler*innen, Performer*innen und anderer Künstler*innen zusammenbringen und teilen. Schließlich liegt die Stärke der Ukrainer*innen in der Vielfalt unserer Visionen, Gefühle und Erfahrungen, verreint in einer gemeinsamen Idee des Sieges des Guten über das Böse.
Die Erlöse für die Eintrittskarten für das Festival werden zur Unterstützung von Künstler:innen und zur Unterstützung des ukrainischen Militärs verwenden werden.
Ukrainian artists against the aggressor: The festival of contemporary Ukrainian culture „Art is a Weapon“ will be hosted in Berlin.
On February 25, Alte Münze, a creative space in the capital of Germany, will host the “Art is Weapon” festival dedicated to Ukrainian art created during the full-scale war. It will feature artists who will present their own vision of the Ukrainian struggle against the invaders through their creative projects. The lineup includes about 40 artists and art groups of various genres.
The program includes musical performances, theater performances, and art exhibitions. Apart from that, Ukrainian local designers and visual performances will be presented.
All of the exhibited artistic pisces are united by a single concept: inner strength of a nation that have lived through an unbearably tough year of war. During this time, Ukrainian art became a symbol of their will and courage. Produced by creators of different institutions even in the most difficult periods, art became an act of resistance to the oppression of the invaders.
„For centuries, our culture has been an eternal fight between Ukrainian authenticity and those who want to break and eradicate it, and it has reached its peak right now. We want to share these emotions with the world at the first “Art is Weapon” Festival in Germany,“ the festival organizers say.
The pre-sale wave of the tickets is currently available. All the profit will be used to support the artists and the foundations that help the Ukrainian military. More information about “Art is Weapon” in Berlin is available on the festival’s website and official Instagram page.
