There was also a lecture by Nazar Sheshuryak entitled “Folk Art in the New Middle Ages”. “When I talk about folk art, it’s not about vyshyvanka and kolomyiks, but about any acts of amateur, non-institutionalized creation, – the lecturer emphasized. – The most interesting things happen outside the institutions: retirees who adorn their entrances with pictures cut from magazines – it’s an act of folk art, graffiti is a folk art, tattoo is a folk art, samizdat is a folk art”.
