Art Terrorism
2011

 
The video features the representatives of Belarusian culture: artists, curators, owners of galleries, poets propagating notions connected with contemporary art. Everybody is wearing balaclavas; it may be the desperate gesture aiming at attracting the viewer’s attention to concepts of contemporary art. Video was conceived as humourous ending to the individual exhibition in Homel (Belarus). Due to the terrorist attack in metro in Minsk in 2011, the public video presentation was not realised and the projection one year later lost its ironic component, becoming the impulse for realisation of major multimedia project Art Aktivism, in which the representatives of different countries demonstrate their own manifesto.
