The project "Perhaps, it is art" is an attempt to outline the problem of defining the monumental art of the Soviet era as a cultural heritage of modern Ukraine. The purpose of the exhibition's display is, first of all, the creation of a platform for the public discussion. Therefore, the project team invites the public to begin a joint search for decisions from the questioning that is known to be a prerequisite for critical thinking.
Concentrating on the monumental art of Zhytomyr region in the 1960-1980s, the exhibition highlights the complexity of the problem of the present state of the monumental heritage in Ukraine as a whole. Thus, the issues concerning the past and future of the Soviet legacy (structurally embodied in the sections of the exposition) are raised.
