Yevgenia Belorusets was writing a war diary from Kyiv, updated in real-time and published by Spiegel (DE) and ISOLARII (EN). It was released daily from 24.2. till 5.4.2022. Each day of the diary included one to five photos. It is an ongoing project, republished also at Artforum, written originally in German translated in several languages.

This diary has formed a basis for the installation being a part of the exhibition "This is Ukraine: Defending Freedom” at 59th Venice Biennale 2022, a joint force project between the PinchukArtCentre, the office of the President of Ukraine, and the Ministry of Culture. Later on, an identical exhibition in a smaller vesion was on display in the Tempel Museum Etsdorf (Germany)

Below is documentation of the exhibition in Venice at the Scuola Grande della Misericordia and selected photos from the diary.
