Idea Code 16496

Swedish visual artist and researcher Annica Karlsson Rixon investigates and juxtaposes two coinciding events in this book: the third reading of a bill leading to the adoption of the Russian federal law against “propaganda of non-traditional sexuality among minors” and a women’s camp on a remote island situated somewhere between Moscow and St Petersburg. The photo series depicts the affinity between the women at the camp, for whom the new law could have severe consequences. Insider perspectives of the situation for queer women in Russia are provided through texts and interviews with activists and academics. This publication is part of Rixon’s PhD thesis.
