"Distant tolerable murder" - a project realised by Polish cultural institutions

A group of people watching the billboards.
Ten Polish cultural institutions, among others the International Cultural Centre in Krakow, joined forces to realise an exhibition project in Berlin public space. Its aim was to demonstrate solidarity with Ukraine in the context of the Russian aggression, and to support Ukrainian artists.

As part of the project 19 works were created by Polish-Ukrainian couples: 18 Polish and 19 Ukrainian artists. They were then presented on billboards in Berlin. The exhibition could be viewed from 31 August until 19 September 2022.

The International Cultural Centre worked with four artists: Alina Yakubenko (UA) and Bogdan Babenko (PL), and Yana Bachynska (UA/PL) and Piotr Pauk (PL). Below you can see the results of their work:
