Volume 2 presents the wealth of Ukrainian photography over the course of five decades. It begins in the 1970s, at the moment when Ukrainian visual art began to publicly express its own language, and concludes with the war that engulfs the country in the present. It visualizes key events in the history of Ukraine and looks at the development of photography during this period.
The circulation of Volume 1 and Volume 2 of The Information Front functions as a platform to support the important work of photography, and, through dissemination and circulation, to maintain visibility of the war. All profit from the sales of The Information Front will go to the Ukrainian charity foundation The Depths of Art, which supports Ukrainian culture, including photographers in a partnership with Odessa Photo Days.
The publication is a companion to the exhibition ‘Ukraine – The Path toFreedom’ hosted by Noorderlicht and presented in Groningen, the Netherlands in the Akerk from September 10, 2022 – 22 January 2023.
