Art in a Conflicted World

Transeuropean perspectives in an age of cultural fragmentation

"In the post-millennia decades, much of the world has become an increasingly unstable and dissonant space. In many areas, fractures characterize our socio-cultural and political relations. Against this backdrop, Art in a Conflicted World presents critical positions by artists and writers from Ukraine, Russia, and Great Britain—regions that find themselves in extraordinary situations of conflict and upheaval. The publication openly expresses these differentiated states of social dissonance and reflects them in various artistic and literary questions and answers. They are the result of an interdisciplinary fellowship program of the Kulturstiftung Schloss Wiepersdorf, in which artistic and cultural insights are gained, the handling of complexity is tested, and models for the future are developed across national borders."

The publication presents works by Sarah Dobai, Nikita Kadan, Ali Eisa and Sebastian Lloyd Rees (Lloyd Corporation) as well as texts by Alisa Ganieva and Tanya Zaharchenko.

The project was accompanied by Wolfgang Tillmans, Tom McCarthy, Katharina Raabe, and Mark Gisbourne and funded by the German Federal Foreign Office.

The publication will be published by DCV in May 2021.
