»Culture in a Warzone« (En)
What does it mean to organise and implement art, culture and music events in a war zone? How does it feel to be under constant threat? Dmytro Kyrpa co-founded the organisation »Repair Together«, which combines clean-up work in war-torn villages with electronic music: Volunteers travel to Ukrainian villages destroyed by the Russian army, set up turntables, organise clean-up raves and even rebuild entire houses. Kyiv activist and musician Maria Tuchka, who combines dark electro and EBM under her artist pseudonym TUCHA and is also performing live at Pop-Kultur, will give us an artist’s perspective on how the war affects music-making. The discussion will be hosted by Simon Bonney, singer of the Australian cult band Crime & the City Solution, who also works as a journalist and is currently involved in several cultural projects in Ukraine.
