National Cultural-Arts and Museum Complex ‘Mystetskyi Arsenal’ is a large-scale cultural project of national and international importance in the historic center of Kyiv. Its mission is to promote the modernization of Ukrainian society and integration of Ukraine into the global context, based on the axiological potential of culture.
The Arsenal (fr.) was originaly built as the factory for repair, manufacture, and storage of weapons. It was built in 1783-1801 according to the project by Lieutenant-General Ivan (Johann) Meller for the needs of the Kyiv garrison. The Old Arsenal Building is the historical and architectural monument of the state importance situated on the territory of the Old KyivPechersk fortress.
During the Independence of Ukraine, starting from 2005, Arsenal became the cultural and artistic institution and got the name ‘Mystetskyi Arsenal’ with the total area of 9.8 hectares and the exhibition area of the Old Arsenal building of 56.000 sq.m. Nowadays the Mystetskyi Arsenal complex is partly in a state of reconstruction and construction that’s why only 12.000 square meters are being used for art projects and events.
One of the Mystetskyi Arsenal’ main task is to create and continually expand the atmosphere of freedom and creative collaboration that is based upon the human dignity respect, solidarity, critical and responsible thinking. In order to achieve that spatial changes are needed in the sphere of space creation, which is close towards a modern person lifestyle and reflects the horizontal communication, equality and the accessibility requirements.
AIMS AND OUTCOMES OF THE WORKSHOP
The workshop is aimed at elaboration of the spatial development scenarios for ‘Mystetskyi Arsenal’ established by the interdisciplinary teams under the curator’s and tutors’ guidance including:
a/ spatial development (“hard transformations”): project-planning suggestions that should lead to long-term and step-by-step transformations of certain buildings and spaces of Mystetskyi Arsenal taken the current challenges and opportunities into consideration
b/ experience development (“soft transformations”): proposals of the creation and usage of the Arsenal spaces and buildings, strategically aimed to create new experience and interaction with the space of Mystetskyi Arsenal.
