This is an emergency gathering in response to a declaration of war. We recognize this as a moment of great consequence. Governments are systemically generating humanitarian catastrophes, the consequences of which we are seeing up close. This is an evening of communal empowerment through education on politics and economics as well as healing and information exchange. We gather in solidarity with the people of Ukraine to raise funds for the transport and housing of those fleeing the war. We assemble to understand how we arrived in this situation, and through these conversations we favor actions over intentions. We connect a selection of artists through artistic, poetic, philosophical, socio-economic, new-schools-of thought-anarchism, cybernetic and queer lenses. As we welcome refugees into our city, we support our growing community through visual art, performance, poetry and musical activations––collaborations on all levels fitting everyone's strengths and limitations within this emergency time frame.
This event will be held at Acud Galerie from March 12th until April alongside a broader online show, featuring both the artists in the exhibition as well as editions, prints and merch by more artists that are willing to collaborate. On March 17th or 18th, we will screen a selection of Ukranian feminist and queer films in the Acud Studio.
The collected money will be used for transport, medicine, housing and food for the people already in Berlin and organisations in Ukraine, focusing on BIPoC, LGBQTIA+ and all other marginalized groups. Everything will be reflected in an open and public ledger. We are aware that the situation is constantly evolving and will therefore adjust to it’s changing needs. For the distribution of donations, we are using nowar.help as a resource and guideline.
You can donate to our fundraiser in cash at the entrance and digitally via Paypal. Proceeds from the bar and catering will also add to the funds. Selected artworks in the exhibitions at ACUD Galerie and online are available for auction. A transparent list of donations and expenses will be continually available, shared and updated.
