The Spiritual Values Institute is a virtual institute that I initiated. There is always not enough of funding for contemporary art in Ukraine, which is why Ukrainian artists often invest their own money into their practices. But SVI makes these gestures visible in order to establish a discourse around this. So, when I realize my own projects with my private money or add some I display the logo of SVI.

Projects supported by SVI:

1. Zhdanovka, a book project, published and distributed in Ukraine, 2006 (4500 UAH)

2. Only for Men, a performance at the Center for Contemporary Art at NaUKMA in Kyiv, 2006 (1638 UAH)

3. Book Lunch, a long-term project focused exclusively on artists’ books, Ukraine, 2008 (1225 UAH)
