Popakademie shows solidarity with Ukraine

01. March 2022

The Popakademie Baden-Württemberg, stands for mutual respect, freedom and democracy and against any form of aggression and acts of war.

We are shocked by the outbreak of war in Ukraine. Our thoughts are with our friends at the Kharkiv I.P. Kotlyarevsky National University of Arts with whom we are connected in the project PRIhME and hope that the war will end soon.

We also feel for the relatives of our lecturers, collaborators and students in Ukraine and people affected by the war. We thank all those who have taken a clear stand against the war, including those in Russia. In particular, we thank the artists who stand up for peace in Ukraine and Russia.

In the fight against despotism and the use of violence, art has a special task.
