HomeUkraine Under Fire: The Visual Arts in Ukraine and Abroad Since 2014

*  *  *

Published on Monday, February 27, 2023

Abstract

To say that Ukraine has a complicated relationship with Russia is an understatement: the region was under direct rule in the imperial period, experienced a period of freedom after 1917, followed by repressive rule through large periods of the Soviet era, and then regained independence in 1991. Now, Ukraine faces Russian hostility and the violation of its territorial integrity, which began in February 2014 with the occupations of the Crimea and Donbas region. I solicit abstracts from scholars, critics, gallerists, and artists whose work reflects upon the role of the visual arts during the current conflict in this region. Their topics should explore how artists have dealt with the Russian invasion and other forms of hostilities in recent years.

Presentation

To say that Ukraine has a complicated relationship with Russia is an understatement: the region was under direct rule in the imperial period, experienced a period of freedom after 1917, followed by repressive rule through large periods of the Soviet era, and then regained independence in 1991. Now, Ukraine faces Russian hostility and the violation of its territorial integrity, which began in February 2014 with the occupations of the Crimea and Donbas region.

I solicit abstracts from scholars, critics, gallerists, and artists whose work reflects upon the role of the visual arts during the current conflict in this region. Their topics should explore how artists have dealt with the Russian invasion and other forms of hostilities in recent years. I wish to explore how Ukrainian artists represent these conflicts, how artists feel their role may have changed during wartime, what cultural shifts have resulted in the face of the Russian invasion, and how arts professionals have responded to threats to cultural patrimony.

Accepted proposals will result in the publication of articles in a Special Issue of Arts, an international peer-reviewed open access journal published quarterly online by MDPI.
