      • Jaccuse! Da Bernstein alle Pussy Riot - Trailer ufficioso

        Leonard Bernstein, Roger Lucey, Marcel Khalife e Pussy Riot: quale filo intreccia mondi musicali così diversi? Tribunali, atti d’accusa e linguaggi sonori agli antipodi sono teatro di un comune destino: musicisti di fronte al potere, costretti a difendere, ciascuno a proprio modo la libertà di espressione. Stati Uniti, anni Cinquanta. La Commissione McCarthy, che opera per la repressione delle attività considerate antiamericane, prende di mira il giovane Bernstein, accusandolo di comunismo. La sua carriera, come era successo a molti intellettuali e artisti di Hollywood (tra i più noti Charlie Chaplin, Arthur Miller, Elia Kazan) rischia di essere stroncata. La sua musica rischia di essere soffocata nel silenzio. Sudafrica, anni Ottanta. La Truth and Reconciliation Commission organizza tribunali di pacificazione tra vittime e carnefici dell’apartheid, per riportare alla luce la verità guardando a un futuro libero da ogni forma di tirannia: Roger Lucey, rocker di colore malvisto dagli apparati governativi per le sue canzoni di protesta, interroga Paul Erasmus, ex agente dei Reparti Speciali, suo persecutore. Libano, anni Novanta. Marcel Khalife, cantautore amatissimo nel mondo folk arabo, è sottoposto a un doloroso processo per aver citato in un suo brano alcuni versi del Corano. Nonostante il suo fosse un legittimo grido di dolore contro i massacri nel 1982 nei campi palestinesi di Sabra e Chatila a Beirut, rischia fino a tre anni di carcere. Russia, 2012. L’oltraggioso collettivo femminile Pussy Riot viene processato per aver cantato una preghiera punk contro Putin il dittatore. La condanna è a due anni di reclusione in Siberia, con l’accusa di “teppismo e istigazione all’odio religioso”. Ma quali assurdi moralismi e quale violenta censura si celano dietro quel processo-farsa? In un racconto di udienze parallele e suoni crossover, la musica, tra le latitudini e i generi più disparati, rivendica la sua vera essenza: una fondamentale espressione di libertà.

            We all have to protest for those who are silent, and we have to protest for each other, no matter the geography, no matter the borders. –Pussy Riot Russian conceptual artists and political activists Nadya Tolokonnikova and Masha Alekhina are founding members of the art collective Pussy Riot. In August 2012, they were sentenced to two years' imprisonment following an anti-Putin performance in Moscow Cathedral of Christ the Saviour. In March 2014, Tolokonnikova and Alekhina announced the opening of the Mordovia office of Zona Prava, their newly created prisoners’ rights NGO. In early September, they launched their independent news service, Mediazona, which focuses on courts, law enforcement, and the prison system in Russia. Tolokonnikova and Alekhina are Lennon Ono Grant for Peace recipients. The March 17, 2015 event was sponsored by Perry World House in cooperation with the Slavic Languages Department and Penn Arts and Sciences.

                      This short video shows the thinking behind Mike Edwards artwork 'Article Ten'. 'Article Ten' is a contemporary reflection on freedom. It features a portrait of Nadia Tolokonnikova from Pussy Riot created from the redacted text of William Wordsworth’s famous poem ‘I Wandered Lonely As a Cloud’. The text in this artwork - Wordsworth’s poem expressing a sense of freedom and joy elicited by his gazing at the beauty of nature - is symbolically redacted in places - reflecting current issues of censorship, secrecy and political oppression by various governments - with particular relevance to the cases of Snowden, Manning and Assange. The use of Pussy Riot and their symbolic fight for human rights and artistic freedom as a subject in the artwork - is used as a metaphoric example of the regressive impact on human culture that occurs when the bruts, the bullies and the barbarians are in power. Adding to this, the beautiful face of Nadia is also ‘covered-up’ by the ‘de-terrorised’ yellow balaclava - simultaneously ‘redacting’ beauty - but also visually representing the daffodils in the poem. The artwork is entitled ‘Article 10’ - a reference to the Geneva Convention For Human Rights. It also hints at the artist's awareness that as well as creating a work of art - he has also created a commodity; a necessary act if the voices of artists without trust funds, Arts Council grants or wealthy backgrounds are to be heard. The image of Nadia comes from an original photograph by Igor Mukhin. The composition echoes the early 20th century Russian Constructivist poster ‘Books’ by Aleksandr Rodchenko - more recently re-created by Mathew Cooper for Franz Ferdinand’s album ‘You Can Have It So Much Better’. The stormy, semi-abstract painted sky - over which Wordsworth’s poem is written symbolizes the storm of controversy surrounding Pussy Riot’s challenge to Putin’s government and their subsequent incarceration. It also echoes the dramatic English Lake District scenery around which Wordsworth ‘wandered lonely as a cloud’ - and where the artist Mike Edwards grew up.
