Victoria Lomasko is a graphic artist who has become internationally recognised in her work of making known the Russia that is most overlooked. In this session, on the occasion of the publication of her book Altres Rússies (Godall Edicions), she will talk with her translator, Marta Nin, about her artistic career and the least known faces of her country.

The artist Victoria Lomasko has spent years travelling, observing, listening, and sketching the most silenced realities of Russian society and her work has been internationally recognized. From life in rural society, to the situation of women and the real world of groups suffering discrimination, for example LGBTI people, her graphic reports make up a portrait that is very different from the image of Russia that is purveyed by official channels. In a country where dissidence is systematically pursued and where political power maintains its control over the media, art offers a space of visibility where the most forgotten faces of society can be described. What is the reality of everyday life in Russia? How is it possible to make visible people who do not exist in the public sphere?

This session is jointly organised with Godall Edicions.

This conversation has been prerecorded in order to guarantee its technical quality and to comply with the current restrictions of movement. It will be broadcast on the CCCB website.

Participants: Victoria Lomasko, Marta Nin
