This event is in conjunction with the London Festival of Architecture’s Fragile Brutalism exhibition, a homage to the Ukrainian modernist prefabricated buildings known as “panelki”, whose destruction has become a haunting symbol of the brutality endured by civilians in the wake of the Russian-Ukrainian war. It deals specifically with concepts of home and its loss. The concept of home and the longing for it may be almost universal, but our desires and ideas about it are not; they vary according to place and time and personal preferences. In an informal setting with Ukrainian music and food, this event will use the exhibition not only as an opportunity to reflect on what is happening in Ukraine, but also to invite Londoners and Ukrainians, along with anyone interested, to explore together what “home” means, what it means to be confronted with the reality or threat of its loss, and what we share in terms of our notions of it and where we diverge.
