Patriotism. Art as present
28 September 2008 - 2 November 2008

The exhibition on the 4th floor of the art centre in the Project Room consists of three components overall: the display itself, a free newspaper distribution and a line up of events that bring together different personalities from the realm of culture. The exhibition is meant to be a performance platform that unites artists, curators, experts, activists and ordinary people.

The many-sided "Patriotism. Art as a Present" — is a mobile project that since 2006 has been showcased in Poland, Russia, Netherlands and other countries. It employs a logotype alphabet to form a universal language. Playing with collective memory, this project — intentionally created for the gallery’s space and prepared to be in line with the room’s context — is inspired by the Soviet propaganda and political communication technologies that still linger within local democracy. A blend of irony, humour and undermining activity, obscured by a manner these logos are used, allows the artists to make up various stereotypes and bits of information about Ukraine and Europe and also touch on such issues as migration, spreading the knowledge or corruption.
