History will inform the present struggle for a voice of opposition.



Radek Community : Activists, Artists
Named after Karl Radek, a Bolschevik writer, the Radek Community was a group of self-declared young artists that existed from 1994 to 2008. Called the "children of the Moscow Actionists", the Radek Community heavily influenced by Anatoly Osmolovsky. The community continued the Actionist tradition by establishing a discursive and performative art counterculture, which was strongly influenced by the history of revolution. They published journals and bulletins as well as performed public artistic demonstrations.
One significant performance was "Barricade" in May 1998, which was assembled next to the Kremlin in an act of dedication to the 1968 student revolutions in France.
