“Russkii Ballad”

Image Hosting by

In this exhibition, Nika Kupyrova and Darja Abdirova will show work that concerns itself with the concept of Russia as a state: the importance of a patriotic and militant outlook, the conquest of space showing technological superiority, the red flag as a symbol for absolute loyalty.

As part of this evening, the short film “Absternakr” will be screened. The film is based on 4 short stories by Daniiel Kharms, a Russian Dadaist writer that was prohibited under Stalin.
