Northeast of Yekaterinburg

Hosted by Asbestos Art Space


Asbestos dust on my raspberries.

We are inviting you to premises of the Asbestos Art Space in Helsinki for the evening of performances called �Northeast of Yekaterinburg�. The title refers to the Asbest town, located some 70km from Yekaterinburg in Sverdlovsk Oblast, Russia. While in the West the mining of asbestos was banned decades ago for its scientifically proved negative influences on the human health the situation in Russia is different. Disputably the world’s largest active asbestos mine is to be found in Asbest.

Asbest in Russia is a place of mining, Asbestos in Helsinki is a place dedicated to arts. Our event aims to be relaxed and apolitical meeting. But art is never apolitical. To stay away from the politics is a political statement. In order to bring something valuable to this world we will do what we know the best. We will perform.
Please, come and join us.
