ЕУ - «eredovoe udozhestvo» - is a cooperative of partisan artists from St-Petersburg existing since 2014.
This multidisciplinary group whose choice of a name already expresses their poetic stance: dropping the first consonants of the Russian words peredovoe khudozhestvo (advanced artistry) is a consciously infantile move, although it yields something that sounds a little like early transrational Futurist poetry. One of the group's founders, the Saint Petersburg poet Roman Osminkin, works through subversion and over-affirmation. Group, working in genres of poetry and video performance, music plays, cabaret theatre, street/urban art, DIY-zine magazines, recycling and re-use things and media. The cooperative invents new forms of sensibility and minority art practices that prepare for the age of post-humanism. Therefore the collective consists of poets, musicians, feminists, things, fruits, vegetables, molecules, and neurons.
