Since the outbreak of war in Ukraine in February 2022, the photographer Mykhaylo Palinchak has been documenting the destruction of his homeland and the effects on the population. The images of the ruins of apartment blocks, the dead and survivors, the people fleeing, and those who stayed put impressively convey the immediate consequences of the war.

The ALBERTINA juxtaposes Goya's Los Desastres de la Guerra with around 40 current war photographs by Palinchak, who has repeatedly dealt with drastic political developments in Ukraine in his works. Goya's depictions of war from the beginning of the 19th century from the ALBERTINA collection and Mykhaylo Palinchak's photographs document the universal brutality of war and the suffering of the civilian population.

The Albertina Museum

The exhibition can be seen from May 24 to August 21, 2022.
