𝖭̶𝖨̶𝖢̶𝖧̶𝖳̶ Unser Krieg
The exhibition is attempting to react upon graffiti, posters and other slogans in public spaces throughout Germany stating “das ist nicht unser Krieg!”.
It is unbelievable to witness that nowadays, in the situation of radical openness, global economy, internet, and migration, war is still possible; and it is no less unbelievable that people think that in a globalized world the war might not affect each of us?
With its exhibition featuring artists from Austria, Belarus, Germany, Mexico, Sweden and Ukraine, the antiwarcoalition.art proposes to comprehend the Russian invasion in Ukraine as “our” war. The artists suggest thinking about individual engagement in this war through the food supply chain, gas purchases, the distribution of labor in the IT industry, and environmental challenges.
The exhibition urges to show that the war in Ukraine is not abstract, it is not finished, it is still present. It makes us aware that the war touches upon each of us in a different way — for someone physically, for someone economically, and altogether it makes a threat to a shared future.
This is not a war between Russia and Ukraine — this is our war!
