Maksym Khodak

born 2001, Bila Tserkva, Ukraine. Lives and work in Kyiv, Ukraine.


Maksym Khodak’s works deal with the topics of history and the ways of documenting it; internet culture; a critical view on cinema and photography. In addition, Khodak's works react to the current political situation around him. The optic that unites these distinct topics is a critical rethinking of the existence of the Soviet legacy in the post-Soviet conditions of his country. Artist’s recent interest is to build a dialogue through art with his generation, people who were born in the 21st century, as an attempt to invent a new political language comprehensible to the youth.
