The exhibits collected in Tallinn belong to Ukrainian museums that continued their work during the war. The exhibition curators are Olga Melnyk, Ihor Oksametny and Viktoriya Velychko, and the co-organizer is Art Arsenal.

As the director of KUMU, Kadi Polli, said, she was worried when the war started and asked if the exhibition could be brought to the museum in Tallinn.

"The exhibition presents works that were brought from many Ukrainian museums. And the fact that all of them are from the war zone, and it was possible to do this - KUU has never had such an experience," said Kadi Polli.
