“Instytutska Street” performance by a Ukrainian artist Ani Zur commemorates the tragic events that took place a year ago on February 2014 on Institutskaja street (Kiev, Ukraine). In a few days over fifty protesters were shot to death by riot police forces.

The background audio is an authentic recording made during the February 2014 clashes.

Ani Zur stated that “the performance raises the question of human helplessness in the face of the state “machine”, and the use of human resources for solving political problems”.
