For the concept of this installation Clap starts from the history of Minsk, a city that during the Second World War was devastated. The bombs destroyed 80% of the buildings and the city was not rebuilt until the 1950s. That is why the population of this city remembers these times as something unpleasant and many of them prefer not to talk about it.

Based on the definition of ‘popularization’, the topic suggested by Minsk Design Week organization, Clap with the collaboration of Wei Lesley wanted to bring this taboo subject closer to Minsk’s current society in a simple and understandable way. Clap’s goal was to create an installation so that society does not forget the facts or the victims.
