2021 marks the 30th anniversary of Ukrainian state independence. What are the most significant events in contemporary Ukrainian art and culture that emerged in the late 1980s and early 1990s? How do they reflect the Zeitgeist of Eastern Europe during that time? What did this European velvet-revolutionary reality bring to the Ukrainian cultural scene? My project will review and summarize a peculiar “stream of memory” written by myself, a witness and a participant of Ukraine’s “Festival Age.”
This was a Ukraine in European Dialogue Solidarity Fellowship. These fellowships are offered by invitation for notable scholars, cultural figures, and public intellectuals from Ukraine.
