Fortress

HD video, 16:17 min.
2013 - 2014
 

The video based on documentary materials filmed during events of Maidan in Kiev in December 2013 - February 2014. Author's voice over comments the episodes with quotation of texts on the history of the Middle Ages (including works by Georges Duby, Ewart Oakeshott, Henry Suso and others). Thematic associations caused parallels between the development of contemporary neoliberalism in post-Soviet countries with a system of feudal monarchy in Europe, and the aesthetics and ethics of contemporary political protest with a struggle of medieval free cities against the rustless barons.
