Education

Master of Arts

University of Washington – Seattle, WA

  • Thesis – “Guerrilla Art and Protest in Modern Russia”: Guerrilla art is a practical, yet often overlooked, form of political protest in Russia based on its closed government structure and art’s traditional role in Russian and Soviet society. I explored this protest method utilizing social movement theories, analysis of media and legal codes, historical research, and photographic evidence gathered during my field research.
