The Ukrainian Breakthrough
The Ukranian Breakthrough is a new political programme of the Ukrainian government with the slogan “For the people, not for the politicians”. It goes on to state, “This is a programme of the strategical development of the Ukraine… for the progress of the whole land. Not for the only minister of department of the executive, but for everything, for every citizen… a basic affluent law of our land… a signpost for the 21st century.”
The Ukraine is at the moment going through a phase of transformation. Within the past 17 years, since its independence, extreme class differences have arisen in the population and yet the Ukrainian people have not yet escaped from the old socialist mental patterns. And much that they do anf think carries the traces of this past. In this work, I have looked for situations and moods which show me the new in opposition to the old.
It is said that one cannot buy taste. With it, people try to realise their dreams. All appears to be for sale. And then, unfortunately, it looks like a copy of the copy of the copy. But it is just a search for a new identity.
