The exhibition “Contra Spem Spero. Stories from Ukraine” continues its Italian tour — you can see documentary stories and photo diaries about the war by Ukrainian authors in Genoa until 20 November 2023.

Artists: Gera Artemova, Liubov Durakova, Nazar Furyk, Alena Grom, Serhiy Korovainyi, Mykhaylo Palinchak, Volodymyr Petrov, Elena Subach.

Curated by Kateryna Radchenko.

The title of the exhibition references the text by classic Ukrainian poet Lesia Ukrainka wriiten in 1890. The poem is a monologue by the author who proclaims the spirit of hope and opposition to all troubles even in the hardest circumstances. The exhibition is divided into three parts: Struggle, Hope and Aftermath. Each of them speaks about the new reality and adaptation to life during the war, about the struggle for the existence of the country, about the traumatic experiences and the hope that motivates them to keep on living.
