The Ukrainian stand has been designed in an avant-garde style, inspired by Malevich himself. One part of the presentation is dedicated to him, in particular, an English version of the book "Kazimir Malevich. Kyiv period".

Ukraine's Culture Ministry says there are plans to promote internationally known names reminding the world about Ukrainian roots of such artists.

Moreover, the Ukrainian corner at the fair will feature comics produced in Ukraine.
