Gli Occhi della Guerra

DOSSIER

Agenfor International remains in solidarity with Ukrainian people and strives to support Ukrainian artists by all means.

The meeting promoted by our Foundation intends to create an understanding concerning the dramatic and complex situation in Ukraine, without neglecting the cultural implications. The discussion will focus on the global and inter-linked effects of the Ukrainian crisis on migration, security and integration: response to the wave of refugees, experiences and challenges related to welcoming such a large number of people. In order to maintain solidarity with Ukraine, we need to think about the future and develop scenarios that would be preventative in its nature, concerning possible abuses. The exhibition proposed by Alessandro La Motta, an artist from Rimini who has promoted artistic dialogue between international countries for years, aims to consolidate the support with the Ukrainian people and to the art of that country ,by assisting artists in creating platforms where their voices can be heard. Hence the invitation to the artist Irina Fedorenko-Semira, Ukrainian artist, a refugee from Kiev to Munich and who in recent months has strongly proposed online and wherever she is allowed to exhibit the exhibition FACES FOR PEACE.
