Taisia Krugovykh and Vasily Bogatov from Gogol’s Wives will talk about documentation of radical performance.
In the 2010s Russia has seen a series of radical artistic interventions in urban space, including those by Voina, Pussy Riot and Pyotr Pavlensky. What was behind the artists’ gestures? How did they come up with their ideas and how did they prepare for their performances? What happened after?
Taisia Krugovykh and Vasily Bogatov will discuss their work as Gogol’s Wives with Triennial curators Tatyana Volkova and Alexandra Obukhova and introduce some of their films (excerpts will be screened).
