Café Kyiv 2024

Berlin, Germany

On February 19, Berlin will host Café Kyiv, an annual event dedicated to Ukraine organized by the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung. The event will bring together representatives of politics, business and culture to support Ukraine and discuss its European future. The Ukrainian Association of Professional Photographers will join the event with the exhibition Armed Truth – 10 Years of the Revolution of Dignity and Euromaidan in Ukraine.

The exhibition includes photographs taken by Ukrainian documentary photographers Mstyslav Chernov and Viacheslav Ratynskyi during the Revolution of Dignity and key historical events in Ukraine over the past 10 years.

In addition, at 18:30, a panel discussion Journalism in Time of War will be held with UAPP Operations Manager Olga Kovaleva and UAPP journalist Katia Moskaliuk.

“Along with continuing to provide substantial support to Ukraine, we would like to focus more on the European future of this country. Ten years after the Revolution of Dignity, in 2024, we are once again holding the Cafe Kyiv event in Berlin and proclaiming: Ukraine’s future is in Europe!” – added Bohdan Miftakhov, representative of the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung.

The venue is the Colosseum Berlin cinema complex (10437 Berlin, Gleimstraße 31).

This is the second time the Konrad Adenauer Foundation has organized Café Kyiv. Last year, under the slogan “We Choose Freedom”, the conference space Cafe Moskau in Berlin was symbolically renamed into Café Kyiv. Previous events have been attended by European parliamentarians, ministers, ambassadors, and representatives of Ukrainian institutions and organizations.

All of the photographs in FREIHEIT were taken by Weldé on disposable cameras between 2011-2015. They show a tender side to the artist and his friend circle, and the purest form of trust. (more…)
