A Conversation. Five Years of War in the Donbas
Ongoing
A Conversation, is an installation and art performance by legendary Ukrainian artist Vlodko Kaufman with the assistance of fellow Ukrainian artist Natalka Shymin, mounted in cooperation with the Ukrainian Studies Program at the Harriman Institute, Columbia University. It is a candid and provocative, yet subtle, treatment of the everyday responses of Ukrainians to war in their homeland and is a reminder to those outside of Ukraine that it endures.


Faces of the Crimean Tatar Deportation 75 Years Later
Ongoing
On the morning of May 18, 1944, the Soviet government initiated a special operation in Crimea: the deportation of Crimean Tatars (Kirimli) to the Urals and Central Asia. Zarema Yaliboylu's exhibition, Faces of the Crimean Tatar Deportation 75 Years Later, reveals this crime perpetrated by the Stalinist regime against the Kirimli through portraits and stories of ordinary people who survived the deportation and managed at last to return to Crimea. The people in these photos are living witnesses to Soviet crimes against humanity.
