“War Up Close” joins Ukrainian event “Kyiv Cafe” in Berlin for the second time

On February 19th, the immersive exhibition “War Up Close” was featured in Berlin as part of the cultural and political event “Kyiv Cafe.” The event took place at the “Colosseum” cinema in partnership with the Konrad Adenauer Foundation.

The event comprised 10 halls with craft Ukrainian product fairs, exhibitions, presentations, discussions, and films related to Ukraine.

At the “War Up Close” booth, guests could experience virtual tours to realistically witness the consequences of the destruction of civilian infrastructure, cultural landmarks, and residential neighborhoods in Ukrainian cities. Approximately 1000 people viewed these videos during the event, with a significant portion being Europeans.

Overall, on that day, “Kyiv Cafe” welcomed over 5000 guests, including the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen.

This marks the second exhibition of “War Up Close” at “Kyiv Cafe.” Last year, we also conveyed the harrowing realities of the Russian war in Ukraine to Europeans as part of our first world tour commemorating the first anniversary of the full-scale invasion.
