soлomiya is an independent magazine founded in April 2022 by OSTKREUZ photographer Sebastian Wells and Kyiv-based photographer Vsevolod Kazarin in response to the Russian war on Ukraine, with the aim of exploring and publicizing the young cultural and art scene in Ukraine. The first issue “War but Art” includes works by already well-known Ukrainian artists Sasha Kurmaz and Mykola Ridny, as well as works by emerging talents, with photographs, collages, texts, and illustrations. It shows what is already lost, but all the more what there is to defend.

The magazine is available for €16.00 at feldfünf and many other locations. The proceeds will go to the participating Ukrainian artists.
