Velvet Terrorism: Pussy Riot's Russia

Edited with introduction by Maria Alyokhina, Ingibjörg Sigurjónsdóttir, Tine Colstrup.

Velvet Terrorism: Pussy Riot's Russia

Punk, humor, poetry and pure rage: the full story of Pussy Riot as told by the group’s members

The Russian art collective and activist group Pussy Riot, formed in Moscow in 2011, is famous for its spontaneous and courageous actions challenging the Russian regime. Edited by Maria (Masha) Alyokhina, member and cofounder of the feminist-activist performance collective, this volume compiles, in chronological order, the last decade-plus of Pussy Riot’s happenings in Russia. Recurrent themes in the group’s feminist, anti-Putin practice include freedom of expression, human rights, LGBTQ+ rights and the release of political prisoners, while recent actions and works feature anti-war statements and support for Ukraine. Accompanying the eponymous traveling exhibition—the group’s largest presentation of work to date and its first-ever museum show—it is bolstered by a vast selection of photos and video stills, as well as personal accounts from the group’s members. In addition to documenting the performances themselves, the catalog chronicles the consequences of these nonviolent public actions for those who took part: these include arrests, beatings, imprisonment, poisoning, surveillance and house arrest. In addition to the iconic performances, such as Punk Prayer (2012), the exhibition catalog also documents a wide range of lesser-known actions as well as the escape from Russia of some of Pussy Riot’s key members in 2022. Told from the perspective of the Pussy Riot activists themselves, the exhibition and accompanying catalog provide a critical and timely insight into the evolution of Putin’s Russia over the past 10 years, including the military invasion of Ukraine.

Sublime punk protest in 'Velvet Terrorism: Pussy Riot's Russia'

Sublime punk protest in 'Velvet Terrorism: Pussy Riot's Russia'

“Pussy Riot is punk as a way of life—direct action, activism and peaceful protests that are desperate, sudden and joyous. Pussy Riot were the first artist-activists jailed by Putin for protesting against his regime. The corruption, inhumane laws, censorship, fabricated criminal cases and torture that are prevalent in the repressive police state that is modern Russia are reflected here through the system’s various responses to Pussy Riot and other activists. It shows how this system has paved the way for the brutal war that Russia is waging against Ukraine, crimes against humanity, fascism, and terrorism. … Pussy Riot calls on everyone to engage in any form of activism as a basis for civic responsibility. Fight for yourself and your freedom, take action! Anyone can be Pussy Riot.” So begins the galvanizing new release Velvet Terrorism: Pussy Riot's Russia, published to accompany the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art exhibition currently on view in Munich and Vancouver. Featured photo is from the 2012 action, “Putin Peed his Pants,’ performed at Lobnoye Mesto, Red Square, Moscow. continue to blog
