Kyiv has always been the cultural capital of Europe. Even now, in wartime, there are exhibitions that capture and reflect on the horrors of Russian agression.
Kyiv Post journalist Aleksandra Klitina took a short excursion with participating artist Anton Lohov, who is famous for his unusual installations.
“Russia kills children” exhibition
The exhibition “Russia kills children” opened on June 4 and is located at the Moscow Gate near Kyiv Pechersk Lavra. It memorializes child victims of Russia’s war against Ukraine during its first 100 days.
The exhibition is dramatic and conveys the tragedy of children’s lost lives. Installations are made of toys, some of which were brought by the parents of youngsters killed by Russian militants.
The “Ukraine Crucifixion” exhibition is located in a World War II museum in the same territory. It features Russian tanks, weapons, ammunition, rations, a Russian planning map to capture the left bank of Kyiv and even a shell-damaged Ukrainian church dome.
One hundred days of war through children’s eyes
This Ukrainian-Polish exhibition opened on June 1 in the World War II Museum, which shows poignant artworks that tell stories through the eyes of Ukrainian and Polish refugee children.
