At the Ukrainian contemporary art exhibition "Tension, resistance, love. Short version" at the art station "Dubulti", the Museum of Contemporary Art of Ukraine (UMCA) presents its first international project in Latvia, telling about warnings that many did not want to see, about decisions that must be made by everyone, and about precious moments that can be experienced in the darkest times.

Exhibitions "Tension, resistance, love. The short version' is based on the wartime art archive, which was created and curated by the NGO Museum of Contemporary Art as a database on February 24, 2022.

The works were created from 2010 to 2023 - this is the time before the war and the time when the brutal war started by the Russian Federation against Ukraine is taking place. The exhibited works mostly come from the UMCA collection and various private collections in Ukraine and abroad.
