The VOINA Art-Group («War»).
Definitely read the article about the Russian Anarchist Art group Voina. They do lovely projects that show how the combination of activism and art is easily made. Voina (or “War” to give them their English name) are a radical art group concerned with challenging the Russian establishment on important political issues such as attitudes towards homophobia, race, and the totalitarian actions of the state, through creating outrageous and provocative art performances in Russia. Two of their members; Oleg Vorotnikov and Leonid Nikolayev have been detained for more than a month at St Petersburg Prison on false allegations.
