03.09.-01.11.22 at Künstlerhof Frohnau, Museum Reinickendorf & Berlin TXL
As part of the Draussenstadt initiative, the KGB Art Week and the Open Studios of Künstlerhof Frohnau, Berlin artist Raul Walch presents a participatory and textile art project for the flagpoles in front of Museum Reinickendorf, Künstlerhof Frohnau and the former Tegel Airport, which is now Berlin’s Ukraine arrival center. Here 5 flags with 5 short statements can be seen: “Stay here now”; “Live Here, Vote Here”; “Unite and Shine”; “Care, don’t Count”; and “Facts over Fear”. We demand solidarity and same rights for all refugees!
These textile objects were developed by the artist in a workshop with Studio Ukraine, a network of Ukrainian artists and other participants: Diane Esnault, Anna Galasyuk, Elena Karnatska, Olga Lisitskaya, Daniela Nich, Karolina Schilling, Kateryna Serbinova, Anna Serbinova, Olena Sperling, Gesa Titgemeyer, Anastasiia Tory, Oleksandra Yaroshenko.
