How Ukrainians Were Looking For Happiness Alena Boika | Ukraine | 01.03.2005
HOW UKRAINIANS WERE LOOKING FOR HAPPINESS
Not everybody loves revolutions. One person is afraid of them and hates them; someone else hides behind hypocritical clichés. I adore revolutions. It is the time when the overwhelming majority gets to forget any tendency to think about washing machines, albeit briefly.

FROM BLANK SPOT TO EXOTIC MARGINALIA
Culture Policy in Post-Revolution Ukradne According to Boris Groys, art and policy operate in the same space today.

Today, interpretation of painting evolution is more complicated than that of relatively new genres such as photo or video as it has always been a rule to refer the action on canvas…

IN EXPECTATION OF RELOADING: UKRAINIAN MEDIA ART
Paraphrasing Voltaire, one could say that if contemporary art did not exist in Ukraine, it would be necessary to invent it. Fortunately, contemporary art does exist in Ukraine.

For almost twenty years, this…
