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. And all those joyful feelings burst forth “We will win” and “Everything is yet to come.” I was fortunate to be able to go to…

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…
