darja_filippovaMy practice is imprinted by the implosion of the USSR and molded in immigration across borders, media and languages. My research focuses post-socialist embodied art practices and, specifically working comparatively between Chinese and Russian contexts, with an attention to class, gender and sexuality, feminist deconstruction and the performance studies methodology. I am also a practicing artist, writer, mother and member of the research collective Agitatsia, a group dedicated to Russian performance, art and activism.  I have a BA from Smith College and MA degrees from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Central European University, Budapest. I am a citizen of Estonia.
