Timeless. Contemporary Ukrainian Art in Times of War – Bode Museum
From 17 March 2023, the Bode Museum will be showing the exhibition “Timeless. Contemporary Ukrainian Art in Times of War”. The sculpture collection and the Museum of Byzantine Art at the Bode-Museum house objects from the 3rd to the 18th century. Despite the historical distance and the often Christian motifs, these representatives of European cultural history are often still of astonishing topicality and social relevance today. Quite a few of the depictions and themes used here serve as a basis and source of inspiration for current art in Ukraine. The collections of the Bode-Museum can thus provide unexpected assistance for a better understanding of contemporary Ukrainian art. For this reason, one year after the start of the Russian war of aggression, the Bode-Museum has invited ten Ukrainian artists to enter into a dialogue with selected works from its own collections.
from Friday, 17. March 2023
