Post-Soviet Cassandras is an exhibition with artists from Russia, Ukraine and Belarus, who all deal critically with the social and political situation in their countries. The show is about analysing the current social reality: about women’s rights and gender roles, about the lack of a political dialogue, about happiness and misfortune within marginalized groups. Despite flagrant abuses, the artists envision ideas for a more inclusive future using the means of art.
Participating artists: Anatoly Belov (Kiev), Gandhi (Saint Petersburg), Shifra Kazhdan (Moscow), Victoria Lomasko (Moscow), Marina Naprushkina (Minsk/Berlin), Nadia Plungian (Moscow)
