Kirill Golovchenko

Maidan – Under Construction

In February, 2014, Maidan Square, in the Ukrainian capital Kiev, was the scene of a bloody confrontation between opponents of president Yanukovych and his riot police. In March, after Yanukovych was deposed and had fled to Russia, Kirill Golovchenko photographed the square. The barricades that the demonstrators had thrown up on the square for their protection had now deteriorated into an almost unreal artefact of the revolution. According to Golovchenko, they are a symbol of the Ukrainian society. For the umpteenth time the country stands at the beginning of a new chapter in its history. If the political situation shows signs of improvement, they will be torn down; otherwise new barricades will be added to them.
