SMCK On Reel / Chain of Solidarity Hamburg is honored to present video works by twenty five Ukrainian artists and designers living in the war zone or in refugee hosting countries.
SMCK On Reel / Chain of Solidarity Hamburg invites Ukrainian artists and designers to document their experiences of war through the art medium video. The reels reflect the artists' desires and dreams, their daily struggle to survive, dealing with fear and loss, and their determination to resist the aggressor.
The videos will be screened from 24 to 27 November 2022 Künstlerhaus FAKTOR in Hamburg, and on 25 November 2022 at Dukat art space in Kyiv.
