Permanent Revolution is a signature project as it will become the first presentation of Ukrainian contemporary art in one of Europe’s and world’s leading museums. The organizer of the exhibition from the Ukrainian side is Zenko Foundation; from the Hungarian side, it is Ludwig Museum. The curators are director of Hungarian museum Julia Fabeniy and Ukrainian curators Alisa Lozhkina and Kostyantyn Akinsha.

For Zenko Foundation, organization of such exhibition means continuing its work in cultural diplomacy. The foundation aspires to popularize Ukrainian contemporary art abroad, and Permanent Revolution project is an essential step in this direction thanks to which the visitors of a major contemporary art museum will be able to familiarize themselves with the best Ukrainian artists.

The exhibition in Ludwig museum will last until June 24.
