The digital installation consists of three video works dedicated to the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine. The animated cartoon „Mariupol. A Hundred Nights“ tells the story of the horrific events that took place in Mariupol in the spring of 2022 and is a dedication to the children who died as a result of the conflict. The video works of two photographers Olexandr Glyadyelov and Maksym Dondyuk are unique footage of Russian crimes in Ukraine, including the evacuation of civilians from the Kyiv region, horrific findings after the occupation and destruction. #WAR_DIARY is a documentary film made by actors of the CCA DAKH in Kyiv who have kept a video diary to express their fears and hopes during the first month of the full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

Cartoon „Mariupol. A Hundred Nights“ tells us a story of a little girl, who wakes up on February 24th because of the air alert and tries to find someone living in the burning city. The main character is based on the story of Alice, a 4 year girl, who stayed in the blocked Mariupol during the whole time, she was also at Azovstal during the last month of defense. When russians allowed the evacuation of civilians from Asovstal, Alice was separated from her mother. A poem used in the film is „The wheels, the wheels, they hit the road“ („Кolesa hlukho stukotiat“) by Vasyl Stus who was a Ukrainian poet and an active member of the dissident movement in the 60's and 70's. Stus was repressed and died in GULAG. The film was initiated with by Gogolfest, a Ukrainian festival of contemporary art, which last 5 years was involved deeply in cultural life of the city, and was created in the frame of the collaboration project „Belief Matters“ between German & Ukrainian artists.
