Drawings Dedicated to Pussy Riot Removed from Feministic Exhibition

The exhibition “International Women's Day. Feminism: from Avant-Garde to Now” has been opened in the Worker and Kolkhoz Woman exhibition complex in Moscow.

      Despite its pretentious name, the curators got frightened and removed four works by the graphic artist Victoria Lomasko from the exhibition. The reason was their subject:  public reaction to the Pussy Riot punk band. The artist was returned her drawings depicting people wearing colourful balaclavas and carrying rainbow flags, a crowd of nationalists shouting: “Pussy Riot to a scrap yard!”, a portrait of a pensioner who wants to participate in punk public prayers, and a picture of the communist Kapitolina Ivanovna with Lenin's portrait. 

      “Curators of the exhibition explained that any mentioning of Pussy Riot is dangerous today”, Victoria Lomasko explains the censorship reasons on her Facebook page.
