From Gatorna (Sweden)


Festival will be organised in Helsinki from 11th to 14th of June.

The modern situation requires a change in the aesthetic and conceptual forms of expressing the real.

Another incentive to rethink representation and tactics was the
pandemic and macro-political vulnerability, rallies and waves of new
political repression in Russia and Belarus, which affected all aspects
of our life.

After the worldwide “apocalypse”, we will meet under a new slogan – “Feast After the Plague”.

Here, on a politically neutral territory, we together (organizers /
participants / guests) will create a temporary autonomous zone free from
hierarchical forms of interaction and discrimination. The festival is
organized by local activists, as well as participants from various
horizontal initiatives, libertarian, left-oriented and anarchist
communities in Russia and the post-Soviet area.

During the festival we will co-create and establish new projects and
connections, produce situational practices and knowledge, and exchange
experiences as activists, artists and disciplinary researchers from
different regions and countries.

Feast After Plague is a territory for the political imagination,
creating and supporting alternative practices of coexisting – a way of
thinking, speaking and acting in opposition to outdated cultural codes. A
space for strategies and tactics of solidarity, synthesizing
theoretical and practical approaches aimed at researching and
transforming socio-political and cultural processes locally, while
keeping global contexts in perspective.

The festival are also a pleasant occasion for us to meet and spend
time together enjoying performances, great music, discussions and relax
in pleasant company and in a safe context.

The aim of the festival is:

Finding new contacts and supporting “invisible” project groups and
initiatives, exchanging experiences, making acquaintances and networking
on current projects. Strategic planning.

Joint project activities. Invention and dissemination of alternative
infrastructures and interaction algorithms within self-organized
communities and nomadic associations. Time spent enjoying.Active
participants are representatives of self-organized communities from
Russia and the CIS countries, local projects and participants from other
countries: activists, artists, representatives of trans / queer / lgbt
communities, feminist initiatives / intersectional / cyber / xeno / left
feminist movements, decolonial trends, participants of anarchist
communities, independent media, representatives of human rights
organizations and NGOs. Also – ecologists, philosophers, sociologists,
political scientists, practitioners and theorists of contemporary art,
critical theory, whose contour of interests lay in participatory
projects and alliances.

The festival program offers various forms of participation: open
discussions / reports / panels , workshops, presentations, video
projects, performances, networking and gentle reflection. The end of the
festival will be a crypto-rave with the participants from the modern
electronic scene, experimental music and political techno-live.
