Pussy Riot

LECTURE 3 RECAP/INDEPENDENT RESEARCH

  • In regards to the coloniolised body and intersectionality, I was thinking of this reality of the shared system of oppression and discrimination and how one of the issues its shared with is sexism.
  • I think that Pussy Riot are a really interesting in regards to this because of their choice to vent their anger through music.
  • In this song in particular the concept of shared discrimination is quite relevent because even though they are a Russian based group, the women indicate Trump as well as Putin to be a problem
  • They’ve already been arrested as a group in 2012 but that doesn’t seem to stop them.
  • The groups music is quite umm generic? And I think that makes it quite easy to circulate amungst a larger audience which is essential to getting a cause across, and does something that maybe not some other, more traditional art forms might do.
