Belarus.Protest.Art is an exhibition and collective action that goes beyond the boundaries of art and brings together, around a common cause, artists, designers, illustrators, photojournalists and activists, engaged in the struggle of the Belarusian people against the “last dictatorship of Europe”. Halfway between the practice of resistance and the passing of the baton, their works are the result of an immediate reaction to the dramatic events of the last four months that have violently shaken Belarus and have already deeply marked its contemporary history.
By focusing on revolutionary praxis at the expense of the poetization of the Revolution, the present exhibition will aim to explore the specificities of the Belarusian protest movement and, at the same time, to account for the complexity of the links between art and politics, two forms of sharing the sensible, two different activities operating, through the act of representing, in a common field of symbols.
On opening day, a state of exception will be declared for the entire exhibition space at 59 Rivoli. Until December 27th, it will become a daily mobilization point and will host about ten public events, conferences, screenings, concerts, and other activities related to the subject of the exhibition. The complete program will be published in December (access by reservation, subject to availability).
