Ukraine War: Channeling Emotions into Art. With Diana Berg

In 2014, the artist and human rights activist Diana Berg fled from Donetsk to Mariupol to escape pro-Russian separatists. Eight years later, she had to leave her home a second time when Russia invaded Ukraine.

In this episode of ‘Die Kulturmittler’, Diana Berg talks about the meaning and potential of art and art spaces in times of war. In 2016, she founded the art platform TU in Mariupol, which she now continues to run in exile. We also learn about her on-going commitment to amplify Ukrainian voices and their needs at international art events, such as the Documenta or the Berlinale.
