Artists were an integral part of the resistance on the Maidan in Kyiv 2014. Their works, helmets, posters and catapults became museum pieces immediately after the revolution. A revolution changes the social and political landscapes of a country, but most of all it changes the physical landscape. The Maidan protests in the center of Kyiv transformed the square into a living installation and gave the city an almost medieval appearance. After the protests ended, the "blitz-museumization" of the revolution's objects, installations and performances began. "The question arises what now remains of the revolutionary content on the Maidan and Ukraine - only a work of art, which is regarded as contemporary pop art by upper-lip bearded hipsters in a museum, or whether more can also grow out of it?"
