Art Wednesday: Dmytro Kupriyan When the war is over
September 25, at 19:00, Dmytro Kupriyan will have an opening of his photo exhibition When the war is over within the Art-Wednesday project.
The war in Ukraine has been going on for the six years. When the war is over is a redefining project about what will happen after the war will be over, that aims to see and outline the goals and challenges that lie ahead. According to Dmytro, first of all it will refer overcoming the division of Ukrainian society, which has been forced to find itself on different sides of the conflict line. Establishing a dialogue between divisions and reducing the degree of aggression, which is already too high.
How and with what will we come to the end of the war? What will society and each of us be? Will there be any reconciliation, repentance, forgiveness? How overall can it be established that the war is over? Should it be ”May 9th” or is it a turning point or a decisive moment after which we can say that the war was there and now it is not?
The photos of the project show the buildings of the frontal zone as well as buildings of the fighting territories in Donbass that were destroyed by shelling.
Dmytro Kupriyan was born in Kyiv in 1982. He worked as a correspondent for news agencies and then began working on the topic of torture while filming a project about the Ukrainian police violence and its consequences (project Tortured).
