Imagine Ukraine is an ambitious project that aims to reach out beyond the immediate urgencies, however pressing those continue to be. It wants to open up to the larger reflection and longer term perspective that are needed for the future. Europe needs an enhanced focus on Ukraine, its concreteness and complexity, its possibilities and flight lines. Our joint understanding needs to grow.

To start with, it consists of three exhibitions, curated by Bart De Baere and Björn Geldhof, based upon the works of Ukrainian artists in the collection of the Flemish Community, presented at Bozar, the European Parliament and M HKA.

These are the starting points to initiate a reflective space about the past, present and future of the Ukrainian part of Europe. In the European Parliament the perspective will be the artist as a witness, in BOZAR the tension between big narratives and the reality of human lives, in M HKA art as a critical capacity.
