How we deal with the world, could or should deal with it, this question is often also the background of many works of art. In view of the rapidly growing environmental problems, the threatening conflicts up to brutal war between open democracies, centrally controlled democracies and direct dictatorships, the discussion about values and attitudes plays a growing role also in art. The works in the exhibition document the status quo, point in conceivable directions, develop new perspectives, and pose questions.
Some works by artists from Ukraine, which were already created in 2013/2014 during the years of the Maidan Revolution, form the starting point. These include the drawings by Lesia Khomenko, the two fragile passports made of clay - Russian and Ukrainian - by Ksenyia Hnylytska and the large panel painting by Volodymyr Kuznetsov, which addresses the fundamental question of violence against tyrants. But also, the dreamy, longing and foreboding aspects with which we deal with the world play an important role in the paintings of Levan Chelidze and Brilant Milazimi or the portraits of Nino Kvrisvishvili.
