MOT: Restoration of Art Institutions in Ukraine
Publication date

The opening of the MOT in Lviv launched a campaign to restore damaged art institutions by the Don’t Take Fake team and the Algorytm NGO.

Module of Temporality (MOT) is the largest international art project of the year in Ukraine. It is a temporary cultural space by don’t Take Fake, created with an international team, and an eponymous exhibition of contemporary art with 28 artists from 10 countries curated by Fabrice Bousteau.

It was presented in Lutsk, Kyiv, Dnipro, and Lviv, the space was visited by over 56,000 people in four cities. As a result, over 10,000,000 hryvnias were generated for the restoration of art institutions damaged by Russia’s attack on Ukraine.

Algorytm platform shares don’t Take Fake team’s desire to develop the country’s cultural environment. That’s why we joined forces and launched a joint campaign to restore art institutions that were damaged due to the full-scale Russian invasion.

Generated by the МОТ project money became the foundation of the restoration fund. Based on the UNESCO list and data from the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine, we identified damaged art institutions that need assistance in restoration and are located in territories under Ukraine’s control (as of September 2023). We also accepted applications from institutions that were not included in the official lists but require support for their restoration.

Applications that met the criteria were evaluated by involved experts together with the teams of organizers from don’t Take Fake and the Algorytm platform. Based on the assessment results, the decision was made to prioritize support for the Chernihiv Regional Art Museum named after Hryhoriy Galagan, which was damaged during Russian shelling. Currently, its team is conducting additional calculations to assess repair works. Meanwhile, it has already been determined that the first instalment will help complete the restoration of windows, refurbish the shelter hall, and establish a restoration workshop.
