War in contemporary art

What does the situation of the contemporary artistic world in Ukraine at war look like? Is the war visible in contemporary artistic practice in the public space? Artur Wabik, a visual artist specialising in murals and graffiti, curator, manager of cultural projects based in Krakow, shares his perspective on Ukrainian institutions, exhibitions, projects and careers of artists as they are today. 

As co-founder of the Comic Museum in Krakow he has organised a number of exhibitions of Ukrainian artists, helping them to establish their artistic practice as refugees. He is well established in the Ukrainian creative sector which is developing in Krakow and thanks to continuous collaboration with institutions and artists in Ukraine is also well informed about current challenges of Ukrainian cultural sector.  

Hosted by John Beauchamp and Dr Katarzyna Jagodzińska, head of the Europa Nostra Heritage Hub in Krakow.
