Turning Around

Named after the seminal Voina's work picturing turned upside down police car, Turning Around has finished its extended run with a special screening of Zevs' “Visual Kidnapping.” It is safe to say now that the exhibition was a turning point for the newly emerging, local “us against them” art and the first attempt of this kind to bring together like-minded artists from Russia (Voina), France (JR), Canada (Adbusters) and Japan (Chim↑Pom). However, most noteworthy is not even the show itself, but a string of special events, talk shows and performances hosted by Chim↑Pom throughout duration of the show. Stirring an open discussion on topics ranging from cultural identity to activism the exhibition managed to reach out and touch on the things everyone can relate to.
