KUL’TURA was founded in 2014 in Berlin by Ukrainian, German and Belgian artists and intellectuals. Our main goal is to introduce contemporary Ukraine abroad and, moreover, create new collaborations and intensify the existing exchange between Ukrainian and foreign artists and intellectuals.
Since 2014 KUL’TURA has organized various events, such as talks, exhibitions, concerts, screenings, and readings in Berlin, inviting musicians (e.g. Lubomyr Melnyk, modern classical pianist), Serhij Zhadan, Volomyr Rafeenko, Sofia Andrukhovych (writers), Bohdan Lohvynenko (traveler), Marysia Nikitiuk (film director), etc.
We do not limit our interest to high-brow culture, so since 2018 KUL’TURA has represented Ukraine in Karneval der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin. One of the biggest European festivals, Karneval attracts more than 1.5 mln visitors each year – a great chance for Ukraine to present itself to the broad public. The motto of the Ukrainian group at the Karneval is:
Ukraine. Tradition. Innovation.
