Film&Video Art Festival
Antiwarcoalition.art at the Split Videoart Festival, Croatia
The International Coalition of Cultural Workers against the War in Ukraine takes part in the Split Videoart Festival (running from October 23 through October 29, 2022). 16 artworks from the antiwarcoalition.art platform will be shown as part of the exhibition at the Prokultura gallery in Split dedicated to the anti-war edition. All the works relate to the questions of the choreography of war, different forms of oppression, and the policy of memory, as well as give a wider view on the language of video art. What tools does a contemporary artist have to reveal the mechanisms of war or ideological background of fascism? How is the Russian-Ukrainian war embedded in the global political, economic, and media context?
Split Videoart Festival’s goal is to promote video art in public space and attract new audiences by organizing exhibitions in galleries and unconventional spaces and locations around town.
International Coalition of Cultural Workers Against the War in Ukraine is an open online platform that collects, shares and distributes statements against war created by artists from all over the world. Driven by the Russian aggression and war against Ukraine, this platform presents an opportunity to protest against war, dictatorship, and authoritarianism. It is an opportunity to express solidarity with those in Ukraine who are affected by the Russian military aggression, and with those resisting colonial, patriarchal, imperialistic, and political repressions and terror elsewhere.
Antiwarcoalition.art is a part of The European Pavilion, an international programme of the European Cultural Foundation. Project also supported by Goethe-Institut e.V., The Danish Cultural Institute in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, Swedish Institute, Human Rights House.
