Exhibition and research project “Znak (Mark) Ukrainian 
Trademarks 1960–80” / curated by Uliana Bychenkova,
Nika Kudinova, Aliona Solomadina U,N,A collective,
animated by Oleksii Romanenko /
Mala Gallery, Mystetskyi Arsenal, Kyiv, 2017

       



Znak project explores the trademark graphics of the designers who worked
in the Kharkiv Chamber
of Commerce in 1960-80’s (Ukraine). 

It returns the forgotten
names of outstanding artists 
to the public and raises
the problem of the state of Ukrainian design archives.



This project shows how the modernistic heritage may be transformed and
acts in the new media.
