KYIV ART WEEK DEBATES

“Molotov may be sold off – it’s not just a piece of non-ferrous scrap metal, it’s a sculpture. There are people ready to dish out good bucks for such items”, Sergey Zhadan speaks through the mouth of his hero. He adds right away, though: “Which acquaintances of mine would need the Molotov bust? That’s how you determine the level of environment you deal with – that’s the only way, no other. Well, I don’t have any friendly antique dealers, jewelers or even undertakers…” Ukrainian society today is akin to that Sergiy from Zhadan’s Depeche Mode – it seemingly understands that the artistic legacy of the Soviet era is not simply “molotovs”, but rather a sculpture / architecture / art – that is, material culture that can store for the society the knowledge of its own progress. True enough, though, it still has no ecosystem – museums, research centers, discourses – that...

KAW 2018: PERMANENT SHIFT

Permanent shift. Memory, humanity, future.  The speed of information flows has risen to such an extent that the presentation of the information itself has become intermittent. Given the fact that we all live in the environment of the permanent lack of time, it is impossible to get an all-encompassing picture of the world. The intermittency has become the very essence of contemporary mind-set. The unwillingness of certain people to be driven away by and live in the rhythm that is permanently escalating creates various social groups.  Oftentimes, the aggressive attitude toward the new can be explained by such rhythm of existence and, consequently, by the different speed of information processing. The intermittency creates the conditions for the coexistence of irreconcilable views, positions, concepts. The refugees find their new home in liberal Europe...
