Zenko Platform seminar of curators and cultural field experts

Zenko Platform forum was established by the fund as a place for communication among culture experts as well as for familiarization of foreign curators with Ukrainian contemporary art. E.g., in spring 2018 in Ludwig Museum (Budapest) Zenko Foundation will present an exhibition of Ukrainian artists, and this project has become possible namely thanks to Zenko Platform.

The main task of the international seminar to be held at the forum this year will be the creation of communication platform to unite Ukrainian and European experts. The project does not limit itself to visual arts only; it will also feature other media, such as cinema, theatre, music, etc. To continue the international seminar and develop cooperation among experts from different countries, an international art residence will be opened in November 2018.
