Parcommune. Place. Community. Phenomenon

The book has been based on the research that preceded an eponymous exhibition that was held in October 2016.

The book includes articles that reveal the squat’s history, analyse exhibition activities of its members and explore the importance of Parcommune as a phenomenon in whole. All the information is presented in the historic context of the late 1980s and early 1990s, and supported with archival materials collected by the Research Platform team from the Ukrainian art scene figures.
