In cooperation with SAY IT
SAY IT is a series of events. Each of them includes an exhibition of contemporary art and discussion on current issues in societies with virulent changes in their development processes. Each time the current problems of one single country are being picked out as a central theme. SAY IT is a specific format of an exhibition space and informative panel initiated by Anna Khodorkovskaya and Anastasiya Yarovenko in cooperation with Hans Knoll. This idea arose in response to the current pulsing situation in Ukraine.
