During the war, art plays an important role in representing the country and uniting people around shared values. The scale of the crimes committed by Russia in the Ukrainian territory cannot be ignored by the world of art. Reflections of the war in art helps us tell the truth to the world and shape the demand for justice.

In this public reading, we will talk with the books about:

  • What does Ukrainian art speak about during the war and how is it perceived by the world?

  • How is the topic of war being processed in artistic practices?
  • What, apart from the war, does the Ukrainian artistic discourse produce?
