Worth Fighting For
The Wanderer / Мандрівник, 2022
This new work by Malashchuk and Khimei refers to a classical piece of Ukrainian contemporary art “If I were a German” by Fast Reaction Group, which was created in Kharkiv in 1994. In this photo series, artists and their friends re-enact German soldiers during the occupation of Kharkiv during World War II. Khimei and Malaschuk repeat the gesture and re-enact Russian occupiers during the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
