Thrown together in just five weeks, the works by some 40 Ukrainian artists were inspired by or eerily prescient of the clashes that helped topple the government in February.Protesters with grimy faces, wearing balaclavas and camouflage jackets, stare out of photographs; oil paintings show lines of riot police with shields; a collection of blurry black-and-white pictures taken during the clashes recalls combat pictures from World War I. Much of the art played a direct role in the protests against president Viktor Yanukovych's government: so-called Strike Posters created by graphic designers were circulated on Facebook and used as symbols.The idea arose from an article that the curators published on Maidan art earlier this year.Among the most striking artworks on show are two that were created even before the protests turned serious in December.
