Voina Collective (RU)

A Russian street-art group known for socially provocative and politically charged works, Voina has more than sixty members ranging from poets, artists, journalists and students. The collective’s diverse range of backgrounds, training and specialisms creates an equally diverse range of socially engaged live events and happenings in public space, ranging from the humorous to moments of considerable risk – they have faced arrest and prosecution many times for their activities. The collective is self-supporting and does not cooperate with the state or collaborate with Russian galleries or the such.
