Letter of intent to support the voices of Ukrainian artists in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and across Europe
On the initiative of Stas Zhyrkov, Intendant Left Bank Theatre (Kyiv/Ukraine), 70 cultural institutions, including the Alliance of International Production Houses, have so far signed the following farewell declaration, which was sent to the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine on March 14: letter of intend.
Statement of Solidarity with the Ukrainian people
The Alliance of International Production Houses condemns in the strongest possible terms the invasion and start of war by Russian troops in Ukraine and the related blatant violation of international law. We are shocked by the extent of the violation of human rights, the violence against the Ukrainian population and the extraordinary threat to peace in Europe.
We declare our solidarity with all peace-loving people and we stand up for the protection of democratic, open societies. As internationally working production houses, we use our contacts and networks to give a voice to and stand by threatened artists and colleagues with our means and work programmes.
Here you find statements of Ukrainian artists: VOICES FROM UKRAINE
Альянс міжнародних виробників рішуче засуджує початок війни і вторгнення російських військ в Україну та пов’язане з цим різке порушення міжнародного права. Ми шоковані рівнем порушень прав людини, насильством проти українського населення та надзвичайною загрозою миру в Європі.
Ми заявляємо про нашу солідарність з усіма миролюбними людьми і стаємо на захист демократичних, відкритих суспільств. Як міжнародні виробникі, ми використовуємо наші контакти та мережі, щоб надати голос митцям і колегам, яким загрожує небезпека, і підтримати їх у наших можливостях та робочих програмах.

CLAIMINC COMMON SPACES III: WELCOME TO THE PLEASUREZONE
After CLAIMING COMMON SPACES had to be cancelled last year, Kampnagel has now developed a variant that can take place and yet is not a purely digital event. Piggybacking with the Live Art Festival, CLAIMING COMMON SPACES III will be experienced from June 03 – 13 at Kampnagel in Hamburg, but also partly in the cities of the alliance houses. WELCOME TO THE PLEASUREZONE is an experimental arrangement for a time in which we learn encounters again and anew. More information will follow shortly here.
Open Call: Corona Iconics
From 3 to 13 June 2021 Kampnagel in Hamburg will host the third instalment of CLAIMING COMMON SPACES, this time under the title WELCOME TO THE PLEASUREZONE. More information about the festival here.
In advance of the festival, the 7 members of the alliance are issuing an open call for participation:
Arts and Encounters Academy
The Alliance of International Production Houses created the Arts and Encounters Academy as a forum for networking and ongoing professional training for individuals who are already active in shaping the space between art and society – as well as for those who are interested in doing so in the future. Application deadline for the first edition was 5 April 2021.

As representatives of public cultural and research institutions in Germany, we share a mandate from the state to promote arts and culture, historical research and democratic education and to make these accessible to the general public. Toward this end, we rely on a public sphere that welcomes controversial debates in accordance with the norms of the German constitution. At the center of our initiative lies a common struggle against antisemitism, racism, right-wing extremism and any form of violent religious fundamentalism.
