Open Gallery Ukraine – the Netherlands: 1000 km view

Open Gallery Ukraine-the Netherlands: 1000 km view is a collaborative Ukranian-Dutch project curated by Maria Lanko and Irina Leifer aiming at challenging public space practices and their perceptions in both countries. Based on research of the interaction and communication between citizens, artists, situations and spaces a series of artistic interventions are developed and realized in public spaces with contradictory past and present such as the Bijlmer district of Amsterdam and the 1000-km long river bed from the Sryi river source to the island Biryuchiy, which covers considerable part of Ukraine. You can find more information on their Facebook page.
