On February 24th, 2024, two years will have passed since Russia began the full-scale invasion of Ukraine. To highlight how artistic practice can persist in the context of war, Hamburger Bahnhof is screening the video works 'Dedicated to the Youth of the World II' (2019) and 'Dedicated to the Youth of the World III' (2023) by the Ukrainian artist duo Yarema Malashchuk and Roman Khimei, followed by a conversation with the artists and Charlotte Knaup, curator at Hamburger Bahnhof.
'Dedicated to the Youth of the World II' (2019) is a filmic portrait of the techno scene at the Ukrainian Cxema rave in Kyiv. The camera captures the movements of the crowd and individual dancers immersed in the music, and then follows the young people gathering outside and lingering a while longer after the party has ended. The 2023 film is a recreation of the earlier work, shot during the full-scale invasion of Ukraine at the same rave where the people continue to dance.
Yarema Malashchuk and Roman Khimei will lay out the process behind the works and their 'desire to reenact,' discussing what it means to continue their artistic work when places of personal freedom and artistic expression are under threat.
An event in the framework of Making Spaces: A Programming Series in Solidarity with Ukraine, funded by the Kuratorium Preußischer Kulturbesitz.
