Meeting with group R.E.P.

Group R.E.P. (Revolutionary Experimental Space) was established at the initiative of Ukrainian artists of the younger generation, which were brought together by the idea of cooperative activities undertaken on Independence Square in Kiev in December 2004, during the Orange Revolution. Since 2006, the group consists of: Ksenia Gnylytska, Nikita Kadan, Zhanna Kadyrova, Lesia Khomenko, Volodymyr Kuznetsov, Lada Nakonechna. Their activities are mainly street happenings and actions as well as installations. Their artistic activities are marked by distance and irony towards the absurdities of contemporary reality in Ukraine.

The excuse for the meeting is the latest publication issued by The Green Box, dedicated to the artistic activities of the group (more >>). The discussion will be attended by Jerzy Onuch, former director of the Contemporary Art Centre in Kiev and the Polish Cultural Institute in New York.
