The #ScienceForUkraine Initiative

March 1, 2022, the Bibliotheca Hertziana has condemned Russia’s attack on Ukraine and published a call for doctoral and postdoctoral fellowships for researchers in the field of art history who are at risk in Ukraine, Russia, and Belarus, independently from their nationality. The denomination of the #ScienceForUkraine Fellowships honors the ScienceForUkraine network that academics created at amazing pace across the globe, and which will be a model for future actions in support of scholars at risk.


The Bibliotheca Hertziana is pleased to host Ukrainian and Russian scholars who work on contemporary, modern, and early modern art.

  • Dr. Lesia Kulchynska (Pinchuk Art Center, Kyiv) explores the clashes with art as the points of high intensity in relationships between art and society. 
  • Yevheniia Moliar, M.A., studies the cultural heritage of the soviet period in contemporary Ukrainian art.
  • Dr. Oleksandra Osadcha (Museum of Kharkiv School of Photography) explores the photographic medium and archival practices in collaboration with the BHMPI’s Photographic Collection.
  • Dr. Dimitri Ozerkov (The State Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg) studies Vincenzo Brenna (1741–1820), a Russian-Italian travelling architect.
