Memory and Space – is a symposium dedicated to the heritage of monumental art and questions surrounding its preservation, including a lecture Memory in danger or war of Statues by Gilbert Gardes, (France).
IZOLYATSIA thus initiates a discussion on Soviet monumental art, highlighting the main trajectories of study and preservation of heritage public art in Ukraine, especially that of the Soviet period. International participants of the symposium will contribute to the exchange by sharing their experiences on the preservation and conservation of monumental art.
Within the framework of the symposium IZOLYATSIA will also launch the online platform, SOVIET MOSAICS IN UKRAINE, a directory of Soviet era mosaics in Ukraine with descriptions and information on their locations. Most of the initial materials were collected in the Donetsk region and now provide an important resource for the study of monumental art in that region.
