The #artandculture thread of the #DossierUkraine considers the Russian war in Ukraine from the point of view of artists, cultural workers, curators, journalists, and scholars. The thread stems from the art and research collective “Beyond the post-soviet”. In interviews and critical texts, it explores how politics and history are mediated through art, how identity is formed through cultural production, and the importance of heritage in a moment of crisis. The thread looks to the past, to trace shifts in Ukraine, Eastern Europe, and the broader “post-Soviet” space. It also gazes towards the future, to ask what is at stake and which new formations will arise.

Collective members involved in this project: media and politics scholar Migle Bareikyte, art critic and curator Yulia Fisch, artist Borys Medvediev, researcher and editor Natasha Klimenko, cultural studies scholar Olga Osadtschy, and art worker Sasha Pevak. If you’d like to contribute, please contact Natasha.

We were young, the book was poorly translated, perplexity set in.
