Multimedia exhibitions «Ukraine: Land of the Brave» and «The Immersive World of Taras Shevchenko» took place in Munich


These two immersive exhibitions, opened on 16 February 2024 to mark the second anniversary of the full-scale invasion, provide insight into what is happening in Ukraine today and how the war is affecting people and cultural heritage.

The immersive exhibition «Ukraine: Land of the Brave» is organised in cooperation with the Embassy of Canada in Germany to mark the second anniversary of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine. 

The event will feature videos, photos and interviews with ordinary Ukrainians defending their homeland, as well as footage shot on the frontline by journalists and photographers such as Serhiy Loiko and Dmytro Kozatsky, and footage from leading Ukrainian TV channels.

Viewers can get the most realistic experience possible, realise what Ukrainians are living through and see with their own eyes the real struggle of the Ukrainian people. 

The exhibition «The Immersive World of Taras Shevchenko» will allow visitors to see the masterpieces of the great Ukrainian writer and artist that are under threat of destruction due to Russia's military aggression.

Today, this exhibition is the only one in the world where you can see the works of genius in an emotional interpretation and realise the unreality of reality. 

On 24 February 2022, during the shelling, the staff of the National Taras Shevchenko Museum hid the Kobzar's valuable works in the same containers that were used to protect the heritage from the Nazi invasion in 1941, to save it, this time from the Russian occupiers.  The rescue operation was carried out when explosions were heard in Kyiv and the enemy was advancing.

The series of two exhibitions was realised through a Canadian-Ukrainian partnership between Kostyuk Productions, the First Theatre Charitable Foundation, and the National Taras Shevchenko Museum, with creative direction by Tais Poda of RockNLight Multimedia and musical curation by Timur Poliansky. 

The multimedia exhibitions were developed with the support of the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine, the BWV Toronto Ukrainian Festival, the International Renaissance Foundation, the Kontakt Ukrainian Television Network, the Vovk Foundation, and Agrosem.

The exhibition lasted only one day, February 16.  Soon it will go to other locations.
