Belarus - Autocracy Crazy

A series of artworks with its origin on the streets of Minsk, the capital of Belarus, in times of quarantine. In a country led by a dictatorship that shortly after causes world wide concern after human rights violations. By sketching, painting and collage, Casper Strietman captures the image and makes it public to a western european audience.


The work brings in view the interpretation of a country far away from western civilization and from the world the democrat is accustomed to. A country were Soviet heritage is so dominant that you imagine yourself at the set of a movie from back in the days. The KGB still exists here, the headquarters dominates the streets like a royal palace would. If you fancy taking a picture of the building you risk immediate arrest. The streets of Minsk form the paragon of dramatic esthetics imagined in architectural picture elements. Fed by the mystique of a political charge thats ever present. Its good for us liberal eyes to see what could have been and to acknowledge, together with the Belarusians that Autocracy is crazy.
