This publication was conceived by Visual Culture Research Center in Kyiv and tranzit in Prague as a follow-up of The Kyiv International—’68 NOW project conducted in May 2018. This collection of texts by contemporary historians, political philosophers and artists explores the political and cultural heritage of the revolt and struggle of 1968, the legacy of which remains a symbol of liberation and rebellion against entrenched power structures, and a cultural and artistic benchmark for Western Europe. The commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Prague Spring and Soviet military invasion of Czechoslovakia continues to define political and cultural divides across the continent.
