Marina Naprushkina

Belarus 2021/22 Performance Installation

In the installation Marina Naprushkina brings together posters, images and objects that understand the human body, but also flowers as information carriers. In short text sequences she shows how strongly the protests of 2020 were integrated into everyday life. Real events meet image and video descriptions, which caused an enormous visualization and acceleration of the processes on the streets in the social media.

Marina Naprushkina is a visual artist, activist and writer. In 2007 she founded the Office for Antipropaganda and in 2013 the initiative “New Neighborhood/ Moabit”. She currently holds a visiting professorship at the University of the Arts and the Weißensee School of Art in Berlin.

Cast: Concept and text by Marina Naprushkina, acting by Kathleen Gaube and Sabine Köhler.

Duration: 25 min.
