Chto Delat [What Is to Be Done?] [Tsaplya Olga Egorova, Nina Gasteva, Artiom Magun, Nikolay Oleynikov, Natalia Pershina/Glucklya, Alexey Penzin, David Riff, Alexander Skidan, Oxana Timofeeva, Dmitry Vilensky] (collective founded in 2003 in St. Petersburg, Russia).

Mixed-media installation.

2013 installation at Tate Liverpool in the exhibition “Art Turning Left.” First presented in at the Moderna Galerija in Ljubljana in the summer of 2011.

“Many of the featured works consider the potential for both personal emancipation and social change that radical learning contexts can have. Take, for instance, the group Chto Delat’s installation Study, Study, and Act Again, 2011-2015, a reading room for the stimulation of class consciousness–a precondition for collective action.”
–Miguel Amado, Review: “Really Useful Knowlege: Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid, Spain,” Artforum.
