Paris Commune was the artists’ squat established in 1990 at Paris Commune street, Kyiv, which lasted until 1994. After Ukraine's independence had been declared, the street regained its name of Mykhailivska. However, the artists continued to call both the street and the squat by the name Paris Commune honouring the revolutionary government of Paris. Therefore, the name of the street – Parkomuna (short after Paris Commune) became a symbol of an entire phenomenon in contemporary Ukrainian art which emerged in a turbulent era of revolutionary political, economic, social and esthetic changes.
