Philipp Kolychev / born 1991, RU; lives and works in Prague, CZ /

It is important to articulate one's position on the subject of humanitarian crisis and environmental collapse.
I believe that the artist has a social responsibility to use the given position in the world to speak up and become an active agent of change. While dealing with the impact of recent social transformations I'm trying to use the power and influence that online cultures gave us, exploring the way our physical and virtual worlds are blurring and how this is affecting our sense of self and reality. A quest for balance between the digital and the real, the online and the offline.
Setting aside the individualism and identity politics that have trapped us in the past, I’m trying to create works that can be used as tools to raise awareness and create a sense of urgency.

Слава Україні!  Свободу политзаключённым!
