Maria Alyokhina is the author of Riot Days, a hallucinatory account of her experiences of the Russian justice system. Centre for Investigative Journalism, #LOGANCIJ
Maria Alyokhina, a political activist, artist and founding member of the punk collective Pussy Riot, was convicted in 2012 of “hooliganism motivated by religious hatred” and sentenced to two years in prison. Upon her release she helped found Media Zona, an independent media outlet which aims to hold Russia’s justice system to account.
In the first of our daring new #LOGANCIJ series of talks and performances, she comes to the CIJ to talk about the reach of Russia’s official media in the age of Putin - and how to get around it.
