Event description: 

Victoria Lomasko is an artist, journalist and writer who has described her preferred genre or medium less as documentary comics or graphic novellas than live “graphic reporting.” Born in Serpukhov, Lomasko graduated from the Moscow State University of Printing Arts with a specialty in in graphic art and book design. A fixture at Moscow’s protests and political trials, Lomasko exposes the inequality and injustice at the heart of contemporary Russian society and gives voice to Russia’s many voiceless citizens. Her portraits of sex workers, juvenile prisoners, queer performers, independent labor union organizers, and all manner of activists tell the stories of “other Russias”—as in the title of her award-winning book Other Russias (published in English translation by Thomas Campbell) in 2017. Lomasko has been recognized internationally as an original and major new voice of unofficial Russia.
