We are Ukrainians. Citizens of Ukraine have taken up arms and are fighting for freedom, democracy and human dignity, switched from cozy living to non-stop volunteering in order to help others to survive and to resist. We are different, but we have one goal - to defeat the evil that came to our land to destroy life. Our contribution to documenta fifteen is to think together with its international community about the reasons of the aggressive war that the Russian Federation unleashed against the civilized world, about the blind spots of the Europeans on the map and in European history, about freedom, decoloniality and the danger of forgetting the past.
We propose to documentafifteen visitors and participants: Talk with Ukrainians, not about them! We invite the audience to come, exchange and discuss with us: About weapons, westsplaining, identity, decoloniality, nationalism, freedom, totalitarianism and collectivity:
