In March 2012, the Russian feminist performance/artist group, ‘Pussy Riot’ whose members include: Nadezhda Tolokonnikova (Nadya), Maria Alyokhina (Masha) and Yekaterina Samutsevich (Katya) were arrested on a charge of “hooliganism driven by religious hatred.” In response to this, the book- ‘Lets Start A Pussy Riot’ has been created in collaboration with members of Pussy Riot and links together the events leading up to and after the group’s arrest and the themes that these courageous women fight for – feminism, LGBTQ rights, freedom of speech and environmental activism.

Contributors include Judy Chicago, Jón Gnarr, Antony Hegarty, Bianca Casady, Sarah Lucas, Bobby Conn, Robyn, Kim Gordon, Lucky Dragons, Billy Childish, Jeffrey Lewis and many more. Also heavily influenced by last years Antony Hegarty-curated Meltdown festival, the book includes an exploration of the concept of Future Feminism, asking how we can move forward and unite different voices and generations to create an inspiring dialogue.

Pussy Riot undoubtedly ushered in a new era of feminism and political freedom with their protest acts. And the dialogue so explosively ignited by Nadya, Masha and Katya continues in ‘Let’s Start A Pussy Riot’. The book will be available to buy from the Royal Festival Hall bookshop during Meltdown June) followed by an initial release via indie record shops and on the Rough Trade website from 24th June.
All profits will go to the Pussy Riot and their families.
