Exhibition at the windows gallery of ERSTE Foundation

Ulyana Nevzorova lives and works as a visual artist in Minsk, Belarus. In her most recent works, she tries to process the political events in her country: “I’ve spent my whole life in a dictatorship. At this point, my role as a citizen and my artistic practice overlap.”

Street Art Battle is an intervention in the public space from 2020. ERSTE Foundation shows her works at the windows gallery from 3 August 2021.

In Belarus, peaceful protesters and activists are being arrested every day. Since August 2020 the people of Belarus have been fighting peacefully for their political freedom.

Ulyana Nevzorova began making films, videos and reports during the protests in Minsk, which she distributed anonymously because of fear of repression. In her work, she critically commented on the government and its power politics.
