Lviv story continues

Category: by sophie engström, ukraine

Before I moved to Lviv I didnt know that one of my big role models in writing, Sholem Aleichem, did live in Lviv for a couple of years. But he was, as I, a restless soul and moved around a lot so to cross his tracks is not very surprising. However, I did know that Ludwik Fleck did work and live in Lviv before and during World War II. I hope to able to write about his Lvivian legacy during this winter. Below you can see a photo of the Jewish Hospital, were he worked.

Category: by sophie engström, ukraine

viepoint-east.org is now located to Lviv in Ukraine. I will stay here for at least one year, hopefully much longer. Since it is my first visit to Lviv it will perhaps take some time to find topics on essays, articles etc. But after been able tracking those down, viewpoint-east.org will of course be more active. If you have any suggestions, please contact me.

So, viewpoint-east.org is slowly returning form its summer coma. One of the main reasons why there has been such low activity is that viewpoint-east.org will change location to Lviv in Ukraine during this autumn. A matter a fact from late September.

But to help viewpoint-east.org to be keep going as strong as it was this spring, I would like to encourage you to write, find writers, come with topic ideas, contribute with photo/art slideshows, etc etc! viewpoint-east.org really need this help, in getting stronger and improved. You can write in English, Swedish, Russian or Ukrainian.

I myself is working on a new topic that is focusing on the question how socialism will be able to reinforce and think new after many years of being trapped in a neo-liberal paradigm. Is it possible to believe Olivier Besancenot when he says that we can find a new way of revolution, reinvented, far from the “bloody caricatures” we had earlier in history? How does people in countries like Ukraine, Poland, Russia perceive this?

Do you have any ideas to add to mine or any other serious ideas? Fell welcome to contact me!

viewpoint-east.org recommends: Taras 3000

August heat still covers most parts of Russia, Ukraine, Belarus (such as the rain pours down at the Swedish West coast), but as far as I have heard the rain and chill is on it’s way during this week (but a storm has already hit Northwestern Russia). I think, however, it’s time for a new hot recommendation: Taras 3000.

Taras 3000 is the alter-ego for Dmitri Yaponets, DJ, performer and producer from Moscow. I have never liked to label music so I refrain and let you decide for yourself what you think and feel.

Kyiv Feb 2010

Category: by sophie engström, ukraine

My lastest visit to Kyiv, but hopefully not my last, was in January-February this year. Cold and dark, but even so, more nice, warm and friendly. Hopefully these pictures can share some of those feelings.
