Kak Dela Kyiv - website launch with Jana Woodstock (DJ-set)
Website Launch | 26.07.2018 | Fahimi Bar
как дела, киев? What's up, Kyiv?
After months of researching and traveling longer periods to Kyiv to follow, interview, photograph, and film young Ukrainian artists of all sorts we might have an idea.
The outcome of these investigations will be presented on our multimedia website, online as of Thursday the 26th of July.
Combining the personal stories of the artists, fashion designers, theatre directors and DJ's, that define Kyiv's current creative scene, with audio-visual impressions we try to trace the identity of a young generation in a country that, quite literally, always has been situated between East and West.
Fed up with being treated as the little brother, be it by Russia or by Europa, many Ukrainians took a renewed sense of pride in their national identity. Today Kyiv's thriving creative scene is attracting international attention, and thus the unavoidable hyperbole of being called the "new Berlin". But if anything, Kyiv really is Kyiv.
21:00 Introduction, screening of some short video's and a little 'behind the scenes' talk
22:00 - 01:00 DJ-set by Jana Woodstock (Osnova, Kyiv)
Growing up in Germany, Ukrainian-native Jana felt close to Berlin already since she was a child. After having moved back to Ukraine at the age of fourteen and establishing herself in its electronical music scene, she now is a proper "Kyiv girl", as she describes herself.
Jana is one of our protagonists, and the audiovisual outcome of our time spent with her in Kyiv will be presented at the event.
01:00 - 03:00 DJ-set by DJ Nephil (Gravitational Waves, Berlin)
Italian-born but Berlin-based Matteo fell in love with Kyiv when he played there for the first time last spring. He will soon stage another edition of his party "Tales From The Evil Empire" in the Ukrainian Capital.
Come by, bring your friends and lovers!
The project 'Kak Dela Kyiv‘ has been funded by and implemented within the framework of MitOst e.V. and is partly the result of the project class at Osteuropa-Institut at Freie Universität Berlin.
