Yarema Malashchuk & Roman Himey, ‘Dedicated to the Youth of the World II,’ 2019 ‘A Letter From the Front’ (Лист з фронту), 2022

The focus of the film is the techno rave Cxema and the youth, on which the camera is carefully focused the next morning after the event. This is the place and meeting that the youth of Kyiv are waiting for and preparing for —this particular escape from everyday life, rejection of it— evokes strange feelings of modern ritual.

This programme A Letter From the Front was originally commissioned and produced by Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea, Rivoli-Turin, after the invasion of Ukraine in February 2022. It is curated by Nikita Kadan with Giulia Colletti.
