Ukrainian for Beginners


'Ukrainian for Beginners' is a video program curated by Nikolay Karabinovych for CINEMA TICK TACK functioning as an ensemble in which non-obvious voices will sound with greater force:

Ute Kilter, Yuri Leiderman, Kyryl Prozenko, Miroslav Kulchitskyi, Oksana Chepelynk, Totem

Nikolay Karabinovych (1988, Odesa) is an artist and curator who lives and works in Brussels and Kyiv. He was the assistant curator of the 5th Biennial of Odessa. His practice is mainly focused on the dramatic social histories of Eastern Europe.

An important goal of this program is an acquaintance or meeting Ukraine.
The video program is arranged chronologically.
This first part consists of video works produced in the 90s. Later, a second and third part will introduce works by Ukrainian video artists produced in the 00s and 10s.

The works will be screened into the public space of Antwerp and will be exclusively streamed live on ticktack.be from Sunset to Sunrise on a daily basis.

The artists whose work will be shown in this program are in different places; some of them are hiding from the bombs in the underground right now. Others managed to move to a safe place, some were forced to leave in anticipation of the war, and someone else is still on the run.
We call upon your solidarity to donate and directly support these artists and their families in the search for safety and the fight for freedom.
100% of donations will go to the participating artists as financial and moral support.
All amounts, also symbolic ones, make a difference in this precarious situation.​​​​​​​
