Research Platform

Research platform is an open platform for thinking, research, and discourse that is accessible to all. Housed in library at the 4th floor of the PinchukArtCentre the Research Platform conjoins research, exhibition making, and education.

At its core stands an academic project that aims to generate a living archive of Ukrainian Art from the early 80ties till present. The platform will attempt to engage with a broad understanding of artistic practices in Ukraine. It provokes interrogation potential to generate new interpretations and readings of the contemporary history of Ukrainian art.

With a growing body of materials that is collected through institutional collaborations and with individual support, the research platform is a centre of knowledge on Ukrainian art. Its mission is to preserve, catalogue and reconsider gained information. The results will be freely available in Ukrainian and English at the library and online.

An active public program rooted in the research engages broad audiences, the Ukrainian Art Community and international experts. Public debate stimulates to reflect on the role of historical research and archiving while re-thinking Ukrainian art history.

The Research Platform is a fundamentally open platform to build out partnerships both in and outside Ukraine sharing knowledge and expertise on archiving and Ukrainian art.
