On the occasion of this year's Charlemagne Prize, Belarusian artist Rufina Bazlova (born 1990 in Grodno/Belarus, lives and works in Prague/Czech Republic) shows current works with motifs of the peaceful revolution in her home country. Using traditional cross-stitch techniques with red thread, she visualizes the protest of the population against the unjust regime of Lukashenko - a protest characterized by strong female characters and deeply rooted in Belarusian history.
FRAMED IN BELARUS
In her project FRAMED IN BELARUS, Rufina Bazlova invites expressions of solidarity with imprisoned political activists. In the form of an embroidered artwork, anyone and everyone interested can sponsor one political prisoner at a time.
"The more we talk about them, the safer they are" (Darya Losik).
Anyone and everyone who is curious is invited to participate in the joint embroidery actions in public spaces. The various locations, dates and times will be announced via the website of the Rheinischer Verein für Katholische Arbeiterkolonien e.V. www.rhein-verein.de and on social media.
The action starts on the occasion of the exhibition opening of Rufina Bazlova in the Suermondt-Ludwig-Museum and will subsequently be continued at various locations in the public urban space.
