Exhibition “The Captured House” was opened in Berlin
The exhibition “The Captured House” shows works by contemporary Ukrainian artists who document in real-time the humanitarian catastrophe provoked by the Russian aggressive war in Ukraine.
The exhibition “The Captured House” at the Alte Münze aims to familiarise the Berlin public with works of Alevtina Kakhidze, Vlada Ralko, Igor Gusev, Anton Logov, Hamlet Zinkivskyi, Kinder Album, and other Ukrainian artists.
After the Russian attack on February 24, 2022, some artists stayed in the combat zone — in Kyiv and its surroundings, Zaporizhzhia, Kharkiv, Kherson, etc., and continued living and working there. The exhibition presents paintings, drawings, and photographs as a chronicle of the war in Ukraine. “The Captured House” is displayed in the basement of the Alte Münze and links it with the Ukrainian bunkers, where people have already been hiding for more than two months.
“We started working on the project already on February 24, 2022, and constantly scaled it up; we worked all the time, each at the place where we were,” said Yuliana Pianykh, managing partner of the PORT Agency.
