A Punk Prayer Context Of Practice Project
Feminist Icons : Key feminist figures that inspire Pussy Riot
A conceptual exploration of contempory feminist subcultures influenced by Riot Grrrl ideology. The project is in response to Pussy Riot’s arrest in 2012 when they were charged with “Hooliganism motivated by religious hatred’ for the illegal guerilla performance of ‘Punk Prayer’ in Moscow’s Cathedral of Christ the Savior. The project is inspired by Russian constructivist and propaganda expression merged with the DIY punk aesthetic found in many Riot Grrrl zines and publications. The bright colour’s reflect the band’s aesthetic as they wear brightly coloured balaclavas during performances.
