They trapped on streets

Video and photo documentation of actions, 2006

On the eve of parliamentary elections in 2006 artists did a series of intervention actions in public spaces of Kharkiv and Kiev. Artists performed homeless people and begged on the streets wearing masks of major Ukrainian politicians faces – current president, prime minister and opposition leader. As the group states, the very process of asking for money from passers-by is a direct metaphor for the method of winning votes through the glut of political agitation in the media.
