After one month, the impressive exhibition of the work of 29 scholarship holders will close its doors at the Akademie der Künste. The finissage will take place on Saturday, 9th of April, from 7 pm and will devote attention to the current situation of artists in Ukraine, examining some of the exhibited works even more intensively in this context. Members of the Ukrainian activist group Armed & Dangerous and scholarship holder Mykola Rydnyi will elaborate on their artistic work under the influence of war.
During the finissage, the visitors have a chance to take part in an artist tour, guided by the the collective plattenbaustudio and artist Christin Berg and, together with the curator Clara Herrmann, providing insights into the different positions and the concept of the work show, gladly inviting the visitors to engage in deeper exchange about exhibited works.
