“Radical art and politics in post-soviet Belarus and Russia (the end of XX – beginning of XXI century)”
in Session 7: SUNDAY June 4th 3:40pm – 5:40pm
at John Jay College for Criminal Justice
524 W 59th St, New York, NY 10019
This short presentation will cover some interesting radical political artists or anti-artists and radical activists in post-soviet region of Belarus and Russia (1990s-2010s). They are in a way continuation of the Soviet avant-garde tradition, including so-called Soviet non-conformists, but also include influences of the second half XX century radical art-groups such as Viennese actionists and Situationist International. Historical avant-garde movements had direct relation to the left movement since many avant-garde figures participated in radical politics. For example, Soviet avant-garde is directly connected to the Russian revolution. In recent time a lot of interesting radical actionist groups emerged in post-soviet Belarus and Russia, some of them integrated already in spectacle (like Pussy Riot, Pavel Pavlensky), some of them not. This presentation will try to analyze from the historical-theoretical point of view the relationship between radical politics and recent radical art groups of the post-soviet Belarus and Russia.

ELECTIONS is a bourgeois institute that is made by the world bourgeois in order to make an illusion of DEMOCRACY, but we all know that true democracy is not that one where someone REPRESENTS you. True democracy is a direct democracy. It is where you can represent yourself. It is where your political influence doesn’t depend on media that is only mediator and basis of the bourgeois civilization, which creates fiction and illusion, MEDIA-SPECTACLE. In this sense, true life is that one which liberates impulse to the decision to make your own choice about your life without mediation of INSTITUTIONS of any kind, which should be directly destroyed. ELECTIONS is a bourgeouis institute which should be destroyed together with bourgeouis world and civilization in order to create space for true poetry and true art – revolutionary. Thus, we should not buy into hypocritical words of the politicians of any kind and of any regime, because they produce nothing other than hypocrisy. NO ELECTIONS. It doesn’t matter who will win, because it doesn’t lead to the radical change and destruction of the BOURGEOUIS CIVILIZATION.
