Bridge and Gap

Visual Culture Research Center and Political Critique invite you to the discussion and video screening Bridge and Gap taking place on Sunday, March 27, at 19:00.

The domination of “walls instead of bridges” emerges in different societies as an answer to refugees, neighboring military conflicts, poverty, or cultural difference. It is easier to imagine those who build walls than those destined to erect bridges. What kind of subjectivity has to take on this work? The starting point of the discussion is a video documentation of the performance The Meeting Point – Bridge, which took place within the framework of The School of the Lonesome of The School of Kyiv – Kyiv Biennial 2015, and there suggested juxtaposition of mutual understanding and gaps, not destined to coalesce.

Participants: Vasyl Cherepanyn (Visual Culture Research Center), Angelina Kariakina (journalist,, Ivan Melnychuk (artist, architect, Melnychuk-Burlaka Group), and Kateryna Yakovlenko (researcher, PinchukArtCentre). Moderated by Lesia Kulchynska (Visual Culture Research Center).

Admission is free
