In his lecture, French historian Yves Cohen will present historical analysis of the events in Rio de Janeiro, in which he participated himself, as well as the events in Kyiv, Sofia, Tunisia, Istanbul, arguing whether recent protests could lead to other types of politics, and whether the 21st century could become “horizontal”.

France Guérin-Pace. Realization of Identity: Between the Origin and Life Journey

0625_mexico-border

Visual Culture Research Center, Poltical Critique and Institut français d’Ukraine invite you to the lecture by France Guérin-Pace, which will take place on Tuesday, 21 April, at 19:00 within the frameworks of the program Migrations, Identities, Territories, meant to take place during the year 2015.

We are all bound by a number of different places: the place of birth, of the family origins, places, where we or our relatives reside, places of our dreams and imagination. All these places are arranged in a personal identification geographical heritage, which, depending on a concrete person and life situation, can be either partly involved, or not involved at all. In her lecture France Guérin-Pace will explain how geographical representation of the individual is formed, how we built our relationships with different places during our life journey, in what way we give sense to real and imaginary places of our former and present residence, what determines population’s feeling of belonging to a specific territory.

France Guérin-Pace is a Fellow Researcher at National Institute for Demographic Research (Paris), where she supervises the research laboratory “Identities and territories of population”. She is a geographer, who explores connections between the construction of identity and territories in individual and collective dimensions, problems of belonging to a specific territory as it is related to geographical paths, new places of residence, and migration.

Lecture program Migrations, Identities, Territories was developed by Institut français d’Ukraine in partnership with Center of French-Russian Studies (CEFR) and will take place during the year 2015.

French identity was formed as a result of displacements of the population. Outflow of rural population and its concentration in huge industrial zones, labour migrations in the 19 – 20th century, post-war migrations, reception of refugees, camps of displaced individuals, decolonization followed by the return of colonizers and emigration from former colonies – all these processes shaped the image of contemporary France. Migrations, borders and regional identities are being questioned today mostly within the European Union. Being central for French historians, sociologists, and demographers, these questions are important in contemporary Ukrainian context too. During the course Migrations, Identities, Territories Ukrainian public will have chance to aquaint itself with the research of French leading scholars and discuss in what way these challenges emerge here today.

Discussion «The Chechen Option»

Triglav_900

Sunday, 5 April 2015, 19:00
Visual Culture Research Center (44 Hlybochytska Street (1st floor), Kyiv)

Visual Culture Research Center, Political Critique, and Docudays UA invite you to the discussion «The Chechen Option», which will take place on Sunday, 5 April, at 19:00.

During ten years the government of Russian Federation conducted a counter-terrorist operation (CTO) against Chechen separatists. As a result, the Chechen Republic was granted a broad autonomy, but de facto, this established its status of a grey area, where legal regulation is replaced by corruption and dictatorship of violence.

At the meeting with Angela Merkel Vladimir Putin suggested the «Chechen option» for the settlement to conflict in Eastern Ukraine. Unsolved and, in fact, frozen Chechen conflict is being reproduced today in the East of Ukraine. As well as Russia, Ukraine now has to conduct ATO (anti-terrorist operation) for its struggle with separatism, gradually appropriating Russian politics of internal colonization.

Can the analysis of internal Russian problems give the key to understanding the logic of its external policy? Can the history of the Chechen conflict shed light upon the situation in Ukraine? What are the similarities between CTO and ATO? Can the analysis of Russian counter-terrorist operation point to possible mistakes and risks for Ukrainian politics?

Participants of the discussion:

Vissarion Aseev is a civil activist, who was engaged in human rights activities in Caucasus, Russia, Ukraine, and Crimea. He is a former coordinator of the Joint Civil Front of Northern Ossetia.

Serhiy Danylov is Deputy Director of the Center for Middle Eastern Studies and fellow researcher at the Institute of Eastern Studies (National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine).

Konstantin Reutskiy is a journalist and human rights activist, head of the non-government organization «Centre for Human Rights Postup». He is journalist at infomator.lg.ua and Hromadske.tv.

Kateryna Sergatskova is an independent journalist, war reporter, who writes for Ukrainska Pravda, Focus, Ukrainian edition of Esquire, Colta, Snob. She made reports from Crimea, Donetsk, Horlivka, Krasnoarmiysk, Shchastya, Mariupol.

Moderator – Nataliia Neshevets

The discussion will take place within the frameworks of the exhibition Grozny: 9 Cities.

The Biennale 2015 in Kyiv will take place!

‘The School of Kyiv‘. The Biennale 2015 in Kyiv will take place despite the withdrawal of Mystetsky Arsenal

Mysteskyi Arsenal has unilaterally withdrawn as an organiser of the 2nd Kyiv Biennale, under the title ‘The School of Kyiv‘. This decision was taken without any warning and unexpectedly interrupts a project that involves artists, intellectuals, civil society initiatives and institutions in Ukraine, Europe and beyond. These groups and individuals dedicated their work to an initiative trying to create a space of reflection beyond the logics of the actual conflicts.

Under present political conditions in Ukraine, after the revolution of Maidan and when the country is at war, the political potential of art is needed today more than ever before. The fundamental role of art as a reflexive instrument is to challenge the present political context defined by the armed conflict in Ukraine.

The biennale is an open project, which society has a deep need for, aimed at creating a public framework, a space where civil society will be able to reflect on its threatened conditions by means of art and knowledge.

We, together with institutions and initiatives in Kyiv, the Ukraine and Europe, have decided to go ahead with the biennale project, after one and a half years of intense collaboration and exchange, without the support of Mysteskyi Arsenal. ‘The School of Kyiv‘ will take place this year as planned!

The project will be realised by the curators in close collaboration with a wide range of artistic and civil society organizations.

Discussion «Does Propaganda Really Exist?»

prop2

Tuesday, 24 March 2015, 19:00
Visual Culture Research Center (44 Hlybochytska Street (1st floor), Kyiv)

Visual Culture Research Center, Political Critique, and Docudays UA invite you to the discussion «Does Propaganda Really Exist?», which will take place on Tuesday, 24 March, at 19:00.

The concept of «propaganda» is mentioned in legal system, media, public and political discourses. Counterpropaganda – political struggle in media field – became the mission of state apparatus, as well as civil society. However, the content of the term «propaganda» is still opaque, its usage is, to a large extent, intuitive and based on the concealed ideological and political preferences, or prejudices.

Such blur implicates the distrust of facts, of any records, or evidence, and finally, – the blurring of reality in general.

What can documentary filmmaking counterpose in this situation? On the one hand, it is always accompanied by the pathos of truth. On the other hand, this is exactly what makes it an ideal instrument, a medium of propaganda.

The purpose of the discussion is problematization of the concept of propaganda in contemporary context. Is non-propagandist depiction of war possible in documentary? Are there any boundaries between propaganda and engaged attitude, between propagandist and antagonist?

Participants of the discussion:

Olga Bryukhovetska (PhD in Philosophy) is a Professor at the Cultural Studies Department (National University of «Kyiv-Mohyla Academy»), culture and film theorist. She teaches the courses «Visual Culture», «Theory of Communication», and «Mass Culture».

Mustafa Nayyem is a member of Ukrainian parliament, former journalist, co-founder and editor of Hromadske.tv, former author for the newspapers Kommersant and Ukrainska Pravda, activist of Stop Censorship! movement.

Svetla Turnin (Canada) is a film and culture theorist, co-founder and Executive Director of Cinema Politica. In 2013 she co-edited the book Screening Truth to Power: A Reader on Documentary Activism. Most recently Svetla has been giving workshops and talks on the politics of festival programming, documentary and activism at international festivals and conferences.

Yevhen Fedchenko (PhD in Political Science) is a Professor and Director of the School of Journalism (National University of «Kyiv-Mohyla Academy»), international journalist, co-founder of Stopfake.org. He organized trainings on reporter skills, television news production, documentary production for international NGOs (OSCE, DFID, PRESS NOW).

Pavel Sheremet is Belorussian, Russian, and Ukrainian journalist, author of documentaries Wild Hunting and Wild Hunting – 2, Chechen Diary, 1991 – the Last Year of the Empire, Execution of Saddam. War without Winner etc. He is a Laureate of the OSCE Prize for Journalism and Democracy.

Moderator – Vasyl Cherepanyn

Exhibition «Grozny: Nine Cities»

groznyi_poster

March 21 – April 5
Visual Culture Research Center (44 Hlybochytska Street (1st floor), Kyiv)

International Documentary Human Rights Film Festival Docudays UA, Visual Culture Research Center, and Political Critique invite you to the exhibition Grozny: Nine Cities, which will take place from March 21 to April 5 at the address 44 Hlybochytska Street.

Grozny: Nine Cities is a joint project by Olga Kravets, Maria Morina, and Oksana Yushko, exploring specific aspects of Grozny’s aftermath through considering them as «cities» hidden within Grozny. Grozny, the capital of war-torn Chechnya, is a melting pot for changing Сaucasus society that is trying to overcome a post-trauma shock of two recent wars and find its own way of life in between traditional Сhechen values, Muslim traditions, and globalization, to cope with rapidly changing role of women, increasing contrast between rich and poor and political games.

The project Grozny: Nine Cities centers on the idea of nine cities being hidden in one, which gives us a concept to explore specific aspects of the aftermath of two Chechen wars considering them as «cities» hidden within Grozny. First city is the city that has ceased to exist – memory of Soviet multicultural Grozny that was bombed and burned down. Second city is the city of war, where violence has become a kind of background noise for locals. Third city is the city of religion, undergoing total Islamization conducted by Ramzan Kadyrov. The city of women and the city of men reveal gender problems connected with these processes. The city of strangers is a story about complicated ethnic relationships within the city. The city of oil is an economic base on which authoritarian President Ramzan Kadyrov builds his city of servants, loyal to his regime. Under the burden of threats and uncertainty, within the wind of rapid changes the city of ordinary people lives its everyday life.

Curator – Anna Shpakova

Exhibition is open every day, except Monday, from 13:00 to 19:00
Exhibition opening – March 21, at 17:30
Project authors Maria Morina and Oksana Yushko, curator Anna Shpakova will attend the opening.
On March 22, at 18:00 a tour around the exhibition will take place with the participation of the authors.

Admission is free

On March 22, at 12:00, Maria, Oksana and Anna will hold a meeting with the audience of DOCU/CLASS on «Group Project Grozny: 9 Cities – how to create and to present a critical project on the events in your country».

On the 5th of April, at 19:00 the discussion «Chechen Option» will take place. The discussion will explore the parallels between the counter-terrorist operation in Chechnya and anti-terrorist operation in the East of Ukraine.

Film screening. The Motherhood Archives

mothersandchildren1

Thursday, 19 March 2015, 19:00
Visual Culture Research Center (44 Hlybochytska Street (1st floor), Kyiv)

Visual Culture Research Center and Political Critique invite you to the screening of film The Motherhood Archives by Irene Lusztig, which will take place on Thursday, 19 March, at 19:00.

Archival montage, science fiction, and homage to 70s feminist filmmaking are woven together to excavate hidden histories of childbirth in the twentieth century. Assembling an archive of over 100 educational, industrial, and medical training films, The Motherhood Archives inventively untangles the complex, sometimes surprising genealogies of maternal education. From the first use of anesthetic ether in the 19th century to the postmodern 21st century hospital birthing suite, The Motherhood Archives charts a course through the cultural history of pain, the history of obstetric anesthesia, and the little-known international history of the natural childbirth and Lamaze movements. Revealing a world of intensive training, rehearsal, and performative preparation for the unknown that is ultimately incommensurate with experience, The Motherhood Archives becomes a meditation on the maternal body as a site of institutional control, ideological surveillance, medical knowledge, and nationalist state intervention. The film works both, as a feminist recuperation of obsolete maternal histories, and as a visual analysis of the persistent disciplining of the pregnant / laboring body.

Irene Lusztig is a filmmaker, media archeologist, and visual artist. Her film and video work mines old images and technologies for new meanings in order to reframe, recuperate, or reanimate the forgotten and neglected stories. Using hybrid formal strategies and combining visual textures (including digital video, Super 8 and 16mm film, and found / archival materials) her work investigates the production of personal, collective, and national memories.

Admission is free

The screening will take place within the frameworks of feminist program that is taking place at VCRC from 3rd to 19th of March

Presentation of the anthology Image, Body, Order with the participation of Mariya Mayerchyk

Homop_ad_Circulum-_dal_Cesariano

Wednesday, 18 March 2015, 19:00
Visual Culture Research Center (44 Hlybochytska Street (1st floor), Kyiv)

Visual Culture Research Center and Political Critique invite you to the presentation of gender studies anthology Image, Body, Order, which will take place on Wednesday, 18 March, at 19:00.

Why do we discuss gender? Actually, why do we still discuss it? Why are we still confronted by latent, or explicit, rejection of this concept and, generally, topics related to gender?

The anthology Image, Body, Order, issued by MEDUSA publishing house, is an attempt to answer these questions, being at the same time evidence of their paradoxical nature. On the one hand, serious gender studies have existed and significantly influenced the contemporary humanities for decades. On the other hand, the concept of gender in the public debate on society, science, and art is still often perceived with mistrust.

Image, Body, Order is an anthology of academic texts on gender issues in different areas of knowledge: economics, medical science, architecture, law, literature, photography etc. The main purpose of the publication is to introduce to Ukrainian readers new, as yet untranslated research works, particularly those from German-speaking part of gender studies, which to this day remain insufficiently represented in the Ukrainian academic context. The materials present wide thematic range: from feminist jurisprudence, to intersexuality, eating disorders, and the gender aspects of architecture.

The anthology will be presented by the editor Kateryna Mishchenko, translators Olesya Bondarenko and Lesya Kulchynska, and researcher Mariya Mayerchyk.

Olesya Bondarenko is a scholar of literature, translator, researcher of contemporary American poetry at Kyiv National Linguistic University.

Mariya Mayerchyk (PhD in History) is an ethnologist, who specializes in cultural anthropology, history of culture, gender and queer issues. She is the author of the book Body and Ritual. Structuralist and Semantic Analysis of Family Ceremonies in Ukraine.

Kateryna Mishchenko is a translator and essayist, co-founder of MEDUSA publishing house.

Lesya Kulchynska is a theorist of culture, member of Visual Culture Research Center.

Admission is free

The lecture will take place within the frameworks of feminist program that is taking place at VCRC from 3d to 19th of March
