To remind people about the everyday consequences of the war, btw 16th June and 2nd July 2022 The Voice of Russia showed the anti-war artworks by 15 Russian artists and illustrators produced in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine on 15 digital screens at Paddington and Victoria stations in London. As in Russia people can face many years in prison for as little as an anti-war message on social media, for some of these artists, this was the only way to make their voices heard. This project was created in collaboration with Art Against War international Telegram channel.
We used digital advertising screens at Victoria and Paddington stations in London as a way to demonstrate that war can be a part of everyday reality for millions of people. Our concern is that the news of the war is becoming gradually normalised. And we are very conscious that we cannot drop this agenda while people in Ukraine are still under bombardment.
