Ukraine House in Denmark returned to the highly anticipated Kulturnatten for the second year in a row. Following its successful participation in Kulturnatten 2022 with a captivating large scale projection of the audiovisual show “Discover Ukraine: Bits Destroyed but Undefeated” onto the walls of the War Museum in Copenhagen, this year Ukraine House welcomed over 400 visitors to experience the showcase of Ukrainian contemporary culture at its recently established premises in Gammel Dok.
The visitors explore the exhibition, engaged in workshops, watched documentaries, tasted Ukrainian cuisine and observed outdoor animation projections by the award-winning Ukrainian artist Mykyta Lyskov.
Tours of the ‘Brave to Witness: Ukrainian War Diaries’ exhibition offered insights into the resilience and vitality of the contemporary Ukrainian art scene amidst the war. Meanwhile, a special workshop based on the methodology of Viktoriia Rozentsveig provided children with a space to interact with and reflect upon the art on display.
