Talks on Art and Risk 3: artistic initiatives in Ukraine a talk with the Ukrainian curator Lizaveta German, PhD

The MuseumsQuartier Wien hosts the Office Ukraine - Shelter for Ukrainian Artists, the leading structure for supporting artists who have fled to Austria in the wake of the Russian war of aggression on Ukraine. Numerous artists from Ukraine are now enriching the Austrian art scene, be it at the art universities or in exhibitions.

For this talk, however, we are asking other questions that we think are important:

What is the state of the art scene in Ukraine itself? Is artistic work possible in a country ravaged by a brutal military invasion? Under what conditions and with what convictions do Ukrainian cultural workers manage to maintain a cultural enterprise or even to create initiatives? As a curator, Lizaveta German can answer these and other questions and report on the current artistic life in her home country.

Lizaveta German, PhD, art history and theory, National Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture (Kyiv, Ukraine). 

Moderation: Simon Mraz, Curator MQ
