16.02.2017 - Nadja Tolokonnikova
Despite her young age, the Russian Nadja Tolokonnikova (1989) has lived an eventful life. When she was twenty-one she was one of the founders of the band Pussy Riot. With their critical punk songs they provocingly try to jazz up ultra conservative Russia. After a performance in which they ridicule Poetin and the Chutch, the band members are being arrested. After a political sham trial some of them are convicted to two years of prison camp. At this camp Tolokonnikova manages to to write her book How to Start a Revolution. She writes about the fate of the group members, Tolokonnikova’s youth and the conditions at the prison camp.
