Let's Start A Pussy Riot

The dialogue so explosively ignited by Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alyokhina and Yekaterina Samutsevich continues in the book Let’s Start A Pussy Riot. Exclusively created in collaboration with the group, this publication brings together artists, writers and poets the book explores feminism, LGBT rights, the power of collaboration and the role art plays in activism. the topics of women’s rights, freedom of speech and power of collaboration through the personal voices of Judy Chicago, Yoko Ono, Antony Hegarty, Kim Gordon, and many more.

Back in March 2012, when Pussy Riot were first arrested, four women (some of whom run feminist collectives in London) teamed up to put on a fundraiser, and this collaboration turned into ‘Let’s Start a Pussy Riot’. Seeing such strong activism for causes they believe in became a ‘click moment’, and they wanted the chance to support, create and activate responses with as many people as possible.

Curated by Emely Neu and edited by Jade French, the book is made in association with Beth Siveyer (Girls Get Busy) and Verity Flecknell (Storm in a Teacup) and will be published by Rough Trade Records with all profits going directly to Pussy Riot.
