Speaking of the Shelter, artists have in mind not only the sarcophagus over the destroyed Chernobyl unit, but also the entire Earth - a universal and the only safe shelter.

Chernobyl encouraged rethinking ideas about the world and placing the person in it. It features the world and the values are determined and set the culture of different eras and regions, for example, a culture of West and East, the Ancient world culture and modern culture.

Chernobyl snagged key cultural moments of our civilization. As a result, we may experience a turning point in the culture of humanity. It is obvious that art cannot remain outside of the process.

The main cause of Chernobyl – is the inconsistency of citizenship, responsibility, spirituality society level of high technology, which the company seeks to master. The pledge of safe use of high technology – is in eliminating the imbalance between the moral and technological development of society.
