Nadiia Bernard-Kovalchuk, «Kharkivsʹka shkola fotohrafiyi: hra proty aparatu» (Ukrainian edition)


The book reveals multiple sources and experimental nature of the photographic work of one of the brightest phenomena in the Ukrainian contemporary art: the Kharkiv School of Photography. In the Soviet underground, under the ruins of the empire or on the Kyiv barricades, the Kharkiv photography has been defined by irony, a critical view on the photographic medium and loning for the collective action for more than half a century. The design and the first edition were funded by the Ukrainian Cultural Foundation.
