Two Ukrainian immersive exhibitions to premiere in Germany

On February 6, the second anniversary of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the Ukrainian Free University in Munich, the Embassy of Canada in Germany and the Embassy of Ukraine in Germany will present the multimedia exhibitions “Ukraine: Land of the Brave” and “The Immersive World of Taras Shevchenko” to the delegates of the Munich Security Conference.

The immersive exhibition “Ukraine: Land of the Brave” will allow the viewer to experience the horrors of the war in Ukraine and the reality of the struggle of the Ukrainian people. Delegates to the Munich Security Conference will be able to see videos, photos and interviews with Ukrainian defenders through the immersive exhibition. The exhibition features footage shot on the front line by journalists and photographers such as Serhiy Loiko and Dmytro Kozatsky, as well as materials from leading Ukrainian TV channels.

On February 24, 2022, during the shelling of Kyiv, employees of the National Taras Shevchenko Museum hid valuable works by Taras Shevchenko in the same containers that were used to evacuate his paintings from the Nazis in 1941. Thanks to the exhibition “The Immersive World of Taras Shevchenko”, viewers will have the opportunity to experience Taras Shevchenko’s masterpieces that are under threat of destruction from military aggression. Today, “The Immersive World of Taras Shevchenko” is the only exhibition in the world where you can see the works of Shevchenko’s genius in an emotional interpretation.

The series of exhibitions was created thanks to the Canadian-Ukrainian partnership of producers from Ukraine Natalia Delieva and Valeriy Kostiuk from Canada, the National Taras Shevchenko Museum, the creative component of RockNLight Multimedia company Taisiia Poda and the musical design by composer Timur Polyansky. The project was developed with the support of the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine, the International Renaissance Foundation, the Toronto Ukrainian Festival, the Ukrainian TV network Kontakt, the Vovk Foundation and Agrosem. Partners of the event in Germany: Embassy of Canada in Germany, Ukrainian Freie Universität and Lighthouse Immersive.
