Artists in conflict zones grapple with dramatic changes to their living conditions, frequently losing access to the opportunities to produce and distribute their work. To continue their work, the call 'What are you working on?', financed by the Südkulturfonds and curated by artlink in partnership with Kaserne Basel, Biel-Bienne Festival of Photography, Coalmine Winterthur, and FIT Festival Lugano, invited filmmakers living in war zones in September 2022. The evening presents submissions from Syria, Myanmar, Libya and Ukraine and includes a panel discussion about the current global situation: How can we support artists?

We look forward to welcoming Rahel Leupin and Heba Hage-Felder (Artlink), Dagmar Reichert (artasfoundation), Lubna Abou Kheir (author/actress) and Tobias Brenk (Kaserne Basel).

Winners: Ameen Abo Kaseem (Syria), Khin Thethtar Latt (Myanmar), Moe Myat May Zarchi (Myanmar), Olena Siyatovska (Ukraine), Simon Mozgovyi & Tabor LTD (Alina Gorlova, Maksym Nakonechnyi, Yelizaveta Smith) (Ukraine), Usama Benyaala (Libya), Vasyl Lyah (Ukraine).

Duration: approx. 2 hours
