During the Ukrainian Revolution of Dignity the reassessment of social and cultural values is taking place . The current president, the government, the law enforcement agencies are subjected to pillory and humiliation by means of mass culture. At the same time, a new sakrum , i.e. symbols and values that embody the revolutionary ideals , is formed . One of the main symbols of the Ukrainian Revolution of Dignity is the Ukrainian poet Taras Shevchenko. Protesters use the portrait of Shevchenko and the poetic lines from his book “Kobzar”.The image of Shevchenko is sacralized , his poetry takes the function s of the Holy Script, the poet is seen as our contemporary. The f orm s of transference of the revolutionary creativity are posters, videos , which are broadcast in electronic form, as well as graffiti on the cities’ streets.
