Club is the New Church
Collective project with Russian activists, Pussy Riot, local artists and performers in Cape Town, South Africa
Club is the New Church represents the aggregated system in the society that originates from a contemporary pop culture phenomenon. The project was inspired by the underground night life. The significance of night life is converted into a notion of assembly. Progressively, underground night clubs have long been a safe space for LGBTQI communities.
Such approach changes the conventional social structure. By adopting the contemporary quote by the pop culture, it shows the sense of resistance and replace the lack of gatherness.
The outcome of the work expresses solidarity with Russian musicians being targeted by the Federal Security Service (FSB).
