The Summer of Peace!
Peace Letters to Ukraine
Starting on 1 March 2022, The New Museum of Networked Art
is realising during The Russian War against Ukraine (open end), the audio-visual art project – Peace Letters to Ukraine – as an internationally networked action between participating artists, curators and cultural institutions in solidarity with Ukraine. Initiated by the Cologne based media artist and curator Agricola de Cologne – The Peace Letters Project would not only like to honour the collaboration with Ukrainian artists, curators and cultural institutions since 2008, but contribute to Peace and defend the endangered freedom – freedom of the word, expression and movement as the fundament of free art and culture.
The term “darkroom” refers to the screening spaces museums often establish for the presentation of audio-visual works, which usually are difficult to be handled in conventional museum exhibitions due to the audio aspect.
The ALPHABET DarkRooms are dedicated to cooperating institutions and the presented curated programs forming the unity of an artistic contexts. Some cooperations like CeC – Carnival of e-Creativity were lasting 10 years generating a more comprehensive context than Tenri in 2015, for instance, which however is unique this way, that the curated video programs were created for this special purpose, but this is generally good for most DarkRoom video programs.
