We invite you to visit the discussion and exhibition program “Corridor” on
8 October.

Russia's military invasion of Ukraine became the starting point for the
creation of the Corridor project, which comprehends the post-Soviet reality
that led to today's tragic situation. Since the beginning of Russia's
invasion of Ukraine, Moldova has become one of the important territories,
hosting the largest number of refugees relative to its own population.
Thus, Moldova has become a kind of humanitarian corridor for Ukraine.

This program was a continuation of the Corridor exhibition project, which
opened in early June. The project was created on the initiative of the
artist Tatiana Fiodorova, who invited artists from the post-Soviet states
to create a symbolic humanitarian corridor in order to support each other
and think together about the future.

collective works created by the participants of the Republic of culture
workers laboratory project.
