Katharina Büttgen

work and life in Karlsruhe (Germany) Belarus 2020. Dictator Lukashenko and the pro-Russian regime silence mass protests through extreme violence and human rights violations. In Lukashenko's Belarus, there is no place for all that constitutes Belarusian culture. What happens when your identity is erased? What happens when you are considered a terrorist in your own country. What happens when you are never allowed home again? Cultural identity and art, connected by traditional slavic embroidery characterize my work and maintain Belarusian culture through the modern day. Жыве Беларусь !
