  • Catalogue Essay

    “The theme of stereotypes was continued by Oleg Tistol in his painting
    series National Geography (1998–2004) where he combined the local and
    the foreign, the authentic and the borrowed, the ethnic and the global
    problematic. The sources of this series were the old illustrated magazines
    with ethnographic photos of different tribes. National exoticism was
    viewed here as the contemporary strategy of selling local brands in the
    global market.”
    (B. Groys in G. Sklyarenko, Oleg Tistol’s Khudfond: Several Words about the
    Beauty of Stereotypes, Kiev, 2009)
