As part of the promotional campaign, the Ukrainian pavilion has created a map of bomb shelters in Venice, which is being distributed to visitors of the Venice Biennale.

This was reported by the correspondent of Suspilne Culture.

The map is also available in online format. In particular, it shows that one of the bomb shelters is located near the Ukrainian pavilion.

"After World War II, bomb shelters became relics of the past. However, in Ukraine since 2022, due to constant Russian missile attacks across the territory, bomb shelters have become important shelters for people again. Knowledge of the nearest shelter has become a matter of life and death. Every Ukrainian, wherever they go, automatically considers the nearest bomb shelter, ready to use it in case of an air raid," the description of the map says.

 

"By creating a map of shelters in Venice, we aim to remind the world of the fragility of peace and that we can enjoy art and live peacefully as long as the international community remains united in supporting Ukraine against Russian occupying forces."

 

 

The map was prepared in collaboration with the creative agency Bickerstaff.734. Maps and brochures were distributed throughout the streets of Venice. This sharp contrast serves as a powerful reminder that war is nearby, and no one is immune to the possibility of it coming to their hometown.

Ukraine at the Venice Biennale will be represented by the project "Weaving Nets." This is a group project presenting works by Katya Buchatska, Liia and Andrii Dostlievs, Andrii Revkovskyi, and Daniil Rachynskyi in an architectural space designed by Oleksandr Burlako. The project curators are Victoria Bavikina and Maksym Horbatskyi.
