In Kiev, on the territory of the Babiy Yar Holocaust Memorial Center, an art object by the artist Marina Abramovich “The Crystal Wall of Wailing” was opened. The solemn ceremony was held on October 6 and was timed to coincide with the 80th anniversary of the tragedy near Kiev, where, according to various estimates, up to 200 thousand Jews were killed during the Second World War. The wall was opened by three presidents – Ukraine, Israel and Germany – to the 13th symphony by Dmitry Shostakovich performed by the State Symphony Orchestra of Germany. Abramovich’s art object – the largest in her career – includes crystal elements that she has been using in her work for many years. We tell you what is known about the new part of the memorial complex, around which there have been disputes for several years.
