We – the fabrik Potsdam team – condemn the war of aggression on Ukraine. Bringing death and destruction to the independent country and causing untold suffering lacks any humanity. We reject this invasion, which is contrary to international law, and demand the immediate cessation of all hostilities and the withdrawal of Russian troops from Ukraine. Our work is based on the free exchange of ideas, the right to mental, emotional and physical integrity, freedom of movement in the choice of art form, working practice and place. The independence of art and culture are signs of an open society that urgently needs these preconditions in order to develop and make encounters possible. These foundations must be secured and protected again in Ukraine immediately. Our colleagues and artists in Ukraine as well as those who are affected by repression in Russia or who are simply against this war can count on our support. We invite all refugees, our offers are open. Come by and talk to us!
