Belief Matters

A ukrainian-german film dialogue

“Belief Matters” – convictions based on belief rather than knowledge are an important reason for our individual choices in life. Belief “matters”, because our individual belief system helps us to locate ourselves within the world and tell us who we are and where we come from.

In the hybrid art project „Belief Matters“ we, together with “Teatromanyia”/Mariupol and the Festival of Contemporary Art “Gogolfest” will explore different belief systems relevant to our societies and create an experimental film dialogue based on our findings.

BelarusBeach 0.1

A cross-national research-project

This project is supported by a grant of the special grant program INITIAL by the Academy of Arts

Anlass des Projekts „BelarusBeach 0.1“ sind die gefälschten Präsidentschaftswahlen in Belarus vom 9. August 2020 und die darauffolgenden Proteste der belarusischen Bevölkerung, die in eine Eskalation staatlicher Gewalt mündeten. „BelarusBeach“ nimmt die Sprachlosigkeit des Westens angesichts dieser Entwicklungen zum Ausgangspunkt der Suche nach einer geeigneten Form, zur Sprache zu bringen, wofür uns die Worte fehlen. „BelarusBeach“ ist die Vorarbeit für ein gemeinsames Storytellingprojekt mit belarusischen Kolleg*innen. „BelarusBeach“ steht als Arbeitstitel für einen imaginären Ort, an dem Belarus*innen und Menschen aus der übrigen Welt frei und ohne Angst zusammenkommen können.

„BelarusBeach 0.1“ is a crossnational research-project in the wake of the falsified president-elections of August 2020 in Belarus. The project explores ways to document the recent developments in Belarus by the means of art and tries to build up a partnership for a storytelling-project together with belarusian artists. The working-title „BelarusBeach“ stands for an imaginary place where Belarusians and the rest of the world can meet freely without fear.
