The level and scope of trauma in Ukrainian society have reached a tremendous scale. We talk about approaches to working with trauma and its communication in humanities and artistic practices, and look at the museum exhibition as a space of possibilities. The conversation focuses on how to use international experience while adjusting the postcolonial optics, how to avoid re-traumatisation when working with memories. And most importantly, what is the significance of trauma processing for the future?
