Дед мороз против путина

Festival Feast After Plague (formerly Father Frost against Putin) is postponed to the next January

Festival Feast After Plague (formerly Father Frost against Putin) is postponed to the next January, due to too slow opening of the external EU borders. 

Festival will be organised from 6th to 9th of January 2022. 

The modern situation requires a change in the aesthetic and conceptual forms of expressing the real.

Another incentive to rethink representation and tactics was the pandemic and macro-political vulnerability, rallies and waves of new political repression in Russia and Belarus, which affected all aspects of our life.

Next year, 2019, the Father Frost against Putin-festival will once again take place in Helsinki.  From the 5th to the 6th of January you can join discussions about the state of affairs in Russia and the x-USSR region, and get a chance to meet various social and political activists without the fear of police or special service operations.

Дед Мороз против Путина

Various initiatives and activists from post-soviet countries and the rest of Europe will be part of this event sharing stories and reports on the situation in their regions. There are plenty of reasons for exchanging perspectives: an increase in repression and a new round of political confrontations are accelerating certain historical processes, not giving us a chance to catch our breath.
