Transition 1989

Why “Transition 1989”? 1989 is a symbolic year for Europe and the world.

This year it is the starting point for many events. The Culture Congress “Transition 1989” both chronologically and metaphorically traces back to 1989. Participants of the Congress will try to define together, what and how changed on cultural situation of Ukraine after fall of the Berlin Wall and collapse of the USSR. How various phenomena and events of the past influenced cultural process and Ukrainian society in general (festival “Chervona Ruta”, activity of The Students’ Brotherhood, restoration of the Ukrainian state, etc.), as well as new events (increase of populism level, occupation of Ukraine’s territory, global information overload). The Culture

Congress has three thematic blocks: Walls. Measures. Intentions.
