The paintings are exhibited for the first time in this extent to the broad public. The exhibition also comprises Stenvall’s paintings dating back to the source of the war, that is the annexation of Crimea in 2014 and other global phenomena with links to the crisis.

The exhibition is a standpoint for peace and against the war as well as an expression of support for Ukraine’s battle.

On the last days of the exhibition, there may be occasional congestion, so it is possible that entry will have to be restricted momentarily.
