Women in Russia – On the International Day against Violence against Women

Since 1987, campaigns have been held around the world on November 25 to draw attention to violence against women and girls. On this day, women in every country around the world and in every society campaign for violence against women to be outlawed.

The Kunsthaus Göttingen is taking this day as the occasion for a thematic tour of the current exhibition. We will use Lomasko’s works to ask ourselves questions about the voices and rights of women in Russia. To what extent does the artist thematize female realities of life in her reportage drawings and which critical voices are closely linked to this?

Film screening & open discussion 

Die Moskauer Prozesse (2014) 

On the occasion of Victoria Lomasko’s exhibition, Kunsthaus Göttingen, in cooperation with Lumiére and the European Film Festival, is showing the documentary film The Moscow Trials (2014) by Swiss author and director Milo Rau. The film is about the probably best-known political show trials in Russia. People involved in art and culture, such as the members of the Russian punk rock band Pussy Riot, were sentenced to harsh punishments for their works critical of the church or the regime. The film stages these trials with actors from real life. Afterwards there will be an audience discussion with Jens Dietrich, dramaturge of the film.

Location: Kino Lumière

Tickets: lumiere-melies.de

In cooperation with Kino Lumiére for Europäischen Filmfestival Göttingen

Performance & Guided Tour 

Finissage

At the end of “Victoria Lomasko. Impossible Return”, we are celebrating the exhibition once again with an exciting program:

15pm Guided Tour on Human Rights Day

16pm Performance Five Steps (with the artist) followed by wine tasting until 18pm

Every year on December 10, the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948 is solemnly celebrated. Human Rights Day reminds us that human rights are universal, indivisible, interdependent and interrelated. However, it also reminds us that, unfortunately, these rights cannot be taken for granted. In light of the pandemic, the war in Ukraine and the current escalations in Israel, this is once again becoming particularly clear. The topic of “human rights” also plays an important role in Lomasko’s work, which will be addressed in a closing tour on the occasion of Human Rights Day.

The highlight of the finissage program is the lecture performance Five Steps, which consists of words and live drawing. By speaking and drawing, Victoria Lomasko recalls the life of a dissident artist in five steps: Isolation, Flight, Exile, Shame and Humanity. In this unique form, the artist gives shape to daily life under Putin’s regime while questioning the production of narratives during a war and the possible role of an artist.
