Avrora is a collective of artists assembled to develop novel forms of self-organization, community building, and connectivity based on the principles of justice, equality, and non-discrimination of race, sex, gender, class, or species. 

 

Today it is not enough to resist force by force. The war in Ukraine makes it clear that attention should be paid to the vulnerable, the subaltern, to cooperation, animals, and the environment in general, to minorities’ and women’s rights. If we don’t invest ourselves in the fragile, it will disappear leaving us only with force that will self-destruct in a spiral of violence.

AhhA

Interdisciplinary artist working with abstract painting, performance, and videoart. In her practice, she uses the materiality of the canvas and her own body as a material for artistic production. Her works reflect emotions and ideas suppressed by a patriarchal society. Following in the footsteps of her teacher Diogenes of Sinope, Khollisy elegantly «defaces the currency» of contemporary values. 

She studied at Rodchenko Art School and St. Martins College of Art and Design and participated at the II Triennale of Russian art at the Garage Museum, and exhibitions in France, Germany, and the Netherlands. Her works are part of the collections of MAMM and MMOMA.

Artist, filmmaker, educator. He received initial recognition with his debut film Mad Mimes in 2012. His next film Krisis was selected for the Oberhausen Film Festival and participated in Documenta 14. In 2018, his film The Hymns of Muscovy earned awards at international film festivals, was broadcast on TV and streaming platforms, and made it into prominent institutional and private art collections and lists of best films of the year. Dimitri has participated in the biennials in Moscow, Bergen, Goteborg, Wroclaw, and others. His works were shown at Whitechapel and Hayward galleries, personal exhibitions took place at MHKA, Nassauischer Kunstverein, CCA Winzavod, Manezh. Dimitri’s work was reviewed by both Russian writers: Anna Tolstova, Alexandra Novozhenova, Boris Klushnikov, Andrey Shental, Gleb Napreenko, Alexander Evangely; and international: Kate Sutton, Simon Mraz, Yin Xiuzhen, Nagihan Haliloğlu, Davide Deriu. 

Figurative painter and digital artist. Ahha received classical training at the Novosibirsk College of Art and Parsons School of Design, New York. She developed her eclectic and recognizable style of collage, reflecting the critical issues of our time. Rooted, among other things, in the philosophy of speculative realism of Quentin Meillassoux, Graham Harman, and others, Ahha creates visual concepts that inherit from such diverse sources as Albrecht Durer’s etchings, the metaphysical realism of Giorgio De Chirico, and post-human organics of Matthew Barney.

She worked as an assistant to the fashion designer Nairi LaPratt in New York and as an art director of the design studio Decorex in Miami, Florida.
