21 stories from around the world. Different languages, narratives and forms of expression. This is new AP KunstArt Fund international exhibition: No longer valid.
It all started in January, when we had high hopes for the new year. As a foundation team – we brainstormed, and decided that we’d like to rethink what is really behind us. Ideas, forms, feelings that we stick to sometimes seem already like a rememberance from the past. A crumb that is no longer useful but somehow sticks to the surface and changes the form.
And then everything changed. As much as we try to stay away from the politics, one cannot stay away from war. European peace is over and we’re all trying to build from pieces that are just being crushed. Suddenly asking what is No longer valid got a new dimension.
The happier we are that we received wonderful submissions from Ukrainian artists: Vlad Nikorchuk, Artem Humilevskyi, Anastasia Milova, Daria Pugachova, Kostyantyn Militynskyy – we are proud to exhibit their works.
With No longer valid exhibition we’re diving deep into contemporary and – at the same time – timeless issues. Ecology, gender identieties, memory and myths. And of course – forms. Sufficient, intriguing, open. As we’re not looking for answers, just for questions.
Feel invited to join this artistic journey, both at the exhibition and with this booklet. We give space for artists so they can speak for themselves and their work, intentions and goals.
