About the Event

In the past decade, Ukrainian art has been marked by significant events such as revolution and war.  Living “inside history”, Ukrainian artists are creating their works without any emotional distance. However, being on the edge has made them more sensitive and their work sharper.

The lecture will cover topics such as oppression and freedom, violence and resistance, body and trauma, home and exile, memory and archive, loss, and desynchronized time. The lecture aims to explore how art and culture have developed during the socio-political transformation and war in Ukraine, and how the experience of violence, loss, and resistance the psyche and imagination.  Since these processes reach more deeply than ever before into the most intimate spheres of human life and the inner worlds.

Lecturer will focus on the cultural landscape and the artists who have shaped it, creating their notable projects.

Daria Prydybilo is an art historian, curator at the Hamburger Bahnhof - Nationalgaleriw der Gegenwart (Berlin) , and founder of the independent cultural institution “Art Matters Ukriane” (Kyiv).
