Pop Up Fall Showcase: Anastasia Babenko
Goethe Pop Up Seattle partners with Seattle-based German artist and gallerist Anna Mlasowsky again to present the Pop Up Fall Showcase at Das Schaufenster as a COVID-safe way to experience new art in our city.
An artist-run experimental window space working to bring interesting, joyful, and thought-provoking art to the Ballard neighborhood, Das Schaufenster is mounting an ambitious, international fall program, consisting of four successive monthly exhibitions.
These solo exhibitions showcase artists from different national and cultural backgrounds and highlight their practice. Each artist will bring their individual experiences, culture, and understanding of their place in the world to the space.
Anastasia Babenko (b.1989), is a Ukraine-raised US-based filmmaker and photographer. After working as a news reporter in Ukraine, Germany, and the U.S., she has gradually shifted to a more reflexive and a long-term approach. In early 2021, she received funding from UN Women to film her debut narrative short. She curated shows and film programs for the Center on Contemporary Art and Northwest Film Forum, both based in Seattle. She was also a part of Seattle International Film Festival’s 2020 programming team. Babenko will debut her newest Film “Viaduct” at Das Schaufenster.
