Vasyl Cherepanyn is a director of the Visual Culture Research Center (Kiev, Ukraine), teaches at the Cultural Studies Department of the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy, and is the editor of "Political Critique" magazine (Ukrainian edition). The Visual Culture Research Center (VCRC) was founded in 2008 as a platform for collaboration between artists, activists and academics. Since its inception, VCRC had organised numerous debates, research seminars, conferences, exhibitions and actions in public space. It is a self-organised initiative that aims to create a productive environment for the interaction between engaged knowledge, critical art, and grassroots politics. VCRC’s claim is to react to the needs and problems of the local context from the universal emancipatory perspective. The activities of the Center usually deal with the issues that are silenced or misrepresented in public debates, both in mainstream and professionalised circles.
