Pussy Riot


Pussy Riot should probably be the inaugural post on the Art/Crime Archive. These are the young women currently residing in prisons in Siberia (well, two of the three of them; one was released) for playing a political punk rock song inside the Church of Christ the Savior Orthodox church in downtown Moscow. Pussy Riot's music sucks, but their art is beautiful--taking on good old Vlad Putin right when he was at his most dangerous (a little vulnerable). Putin's draconian punishment is right out of Stalin's playbook and deservedly got slammed by everyone from Madonna to Hillary Clinton. Is Pussy Riot art or crime? They got convicted, but no one except Putin himself thinks their work is criminal.
