Explication:
The exhibition presents the works of artists representing four domains of broadly  understood identity (national, ethnic, cultural) – Belarusian, Romani, Jewish and Ukrainian.  We understand it as a field of affiliation, stitched and limited by a personal creative gesture,  individual and unique statement of one's own experience, freedom, choice and strategy. 

Identity is a deposit and a commitment. It is not an article of the contract concluded by the  artist with the heritage of their ancestors, but its clause. Our cognitive and emotional  competence determines how much we are able to recognize this identity and sympathize  with it without losing sight of its diversity and internal complications.
