I am very pleased to share that some images of the first edition of “Post Truth? Countering disinformation narratives” in Kyiv, Ukraine which I have been directing as being its curator, designer of the program and facilitator of the process which followed a hybrid experimental program between training course, experiential collective engagement and a collaborative artist residency, a space to create artistic responses from the collective experience.
During 8 days, 8 selected Ukrainian artists explored the topic of post truth from different perspectives, focusing on the growing problem of disinformation and fake news and how it could be countered through critical thinking, media literacy and other artistic strategies.
We had the honour to have invited researchers from different disciplines: Mykhailo Koltsov, Bogdan Bondarchuk, Alessandro Rolandi, Txaro Arrazola and Bernard Fairhurst. We also had a number of experiential and experimental collaborative activities including a collective engaged dialogue with the Dnipro river. The collaborative process enabled ideas to be materialised in the final presentation where the artists created some artworks presented as a multidisciplinary installation in the Art Space «Вежа» located at The National Technical University of Ukraine in Kyiv.
This project has been organized by Lernlabor in partnership with Logos Ukraine and financed by the Auswärtiges Amt and Civil Society Cooperation. Thanks to the local coordinator Veronika Kurkina in support of her team in Logos Ukraine (Viktoriia Nuzhdova , Emir Shevkiev) who took care of logistics providing a safe and comfortable working environment.
Thanks to much to all who made it happening, in particular to the selected artists who managed to create very inspiring and meaningful artistic outcomes, thank you:
