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 project provides a dialogue between Ukrainian contemporary artists who are dealing with the ongoing Russian-Ukrainian war and selected works 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 tense situation in their homeland since 2014. Thus, the project is dedicated to a century of European experience of war.

The presentation is realized in partnership with Ukrainian culture memory platform Past / Future / Art that carries out artistic research and commemorative projects since 2019 to engage broader audiences to work through the past. This project was developed by Kateryna Semenyuk, co-founder of the platform, during her fellowship in the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart in fall 2022. Her stay in Stuttgart was a part of the CrossCulture programme organized by ifa (Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen).
