Visual Culture Research Centre

The Visual Culture Research Center (VCRC) was founded in 2008 in the Ukraine capital of Kiev as a platform for collaboration between academics, artists and activists. The centre’s primary aim is to create an interdisciplinary environment that makes a contribution towards a more nuanced understanding of post-Soviet life in Ukraine through the lens of art and culture. Led by a dynamic and engaged group, the centre succeeds in connecting diverse Ukrainian and international audiences to develop art and critical cultural thinking that can equip us with the skills of open-mindedness and a powerful imagination – skills that are so vital to progressive democratic society.
