“On February 24, 2022, the war knocked on the door of every Ukrainian. The “Doors” art installation will show and tell the stories of millions of Ukrainians who were forced to cross the doors of their homes to escape the war and terror caused by the Russian soldiers. Many of them died without being able to get out…
We draw a parallel with lives as a doors. Because doors, like people, have their own story. We will take you through the doors of Ukrainian homes. To show you… What is life? What is death? What is fortitude? What is courage? And what is the price of freedom…”
“Doors. Through the Horror of War” is a powerful and moving exhibition that oﬀers a unique opportunity to see, touch and even smell the devastating impact of war on the people of Ukraine.
