This groundbreaking study of avant-garde art produced in Ukraine between 1900 and the 1930s accompanies a major international exhibition opening at the Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum in Madrid before traveling to other venues in Europe.

In the Eye of the Storm: Modernism in Ukraine, 1900–1930s presents the groundbreaking art produced in Ukraine in the early 20th century. The book accompanies an exhibition that traces Ukrainian artistic developments between 1900 and the 1930s in three key cultural centers― Kharkiv, Kyiv, and Odesa―against a complicated socio-political backdrop of collapsing empires, World War I, the Revolution of 1917, and the creation of Soviet Ukraine.

Showcasing avant-garde art and the Ukrainian artists who made it, while acknowledging the complex geopolitical structures and identities within which it functioned, In the Eye of the Storm features works in various media, from traditional oil paintings and drawings to collages, graphic and theater designs, and cinema. Exploring the distinctive voice of Ukrainian artists in the early 20th century, this is a relevant and important publication that reveals Ukraine’s significant contribution to modern art.
