The exhibition Ukrainian News at the Centre for Contemporary Art Zamek Ujazdowski in Warsaw brings together for the first time a variety of engaged artistic practices from contemporary Ukraine. Focusing on the work of activist groups as well as individual artists, the exhibition shows conventions that transcend the accustomed artistic approaches. The Post-Soviet condition of Ukrainian society is represented through the work of various sorts—from street artists to intellectual communities involved in current social struggles.
In recent years, the contemporary art scene of Eastern Europe has seen an outburst of artistic engagement into social and political agendas of the Post-Communist Societies marked with the advance of neocapitalism.
