Pussy Riot is a Russian feminist punk rock protest group based in Moscow. Founded in August 2011, it has a variable membership of approximately 11 women ranging in age from about 20 to 33 (as of 2012). The group stages unauthorized provocative guerrilla performances in unusual public locations, which are edited into music videos and posted on the Internet. The collective’s lyrical themes include feminism, LGBT rights, and opposition to Russian President Vladimir Putin, whom the group considers a dictator, and to his links with the leadership of the Russian Orthodox Church.
Zarina Zabrisky is the author of three short story collections, a book of collaborative poetry co-written with Simon Rogghe, and a novel “We, Monsters” (Numina Press).
Zabrisky’s prose was featured worldwide in over thirty literary magazines, including The Nervous Breakdown, A Capella Zoo, Eleven Eleven, and Red Fez. Interviews with Zabrisky and reviews of her books appeared in The Rumpus, Guernica, PANK Magazine, decomP and more. Zabrisky received multiple nominations and awards, including three Pushcart Prize nominations and 2013 Acker Award for Achievement in The Avant Garde. She is a co-founder of The Arts Resistance, a collective resisting the war and injustice through the means of the arts.
