From 1914 till Ukraine

The exhibition draws on the international law-breaking Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022 to reflect on European values and Europe’s destiny and future.

The presentation is taking place in one of the Otto Dix dedicated collection rooms at the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart. She provides a dialogue between works of 10 Ukrainian contemporary artists who are dealing with the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war and selected paintings by Otto Dix. While Dix’s works address his experiences at the front in World War I and as a prisoner of war in World War II, the Ukrainian artists respond with their works to the dramatic situation in their homeland since 2014. Thus, the project is dedicated to a century of European experience of war.
