THE GAME OF KNIVES by Katerina Sidorova and Yannik Güldner
148 x 210mm, 68 pages, black and white printing, perfect bound, 2023
The publication was made on the occasion of Bottleneck solo exhibition at West, The Hague. The solo exhibition ‘Bottleneck’ by Katerina Sidorova is informed by a critical juncture in the country’s contemporary history through the protest of May 6, 2012. The moment in which the largest protests of civil society for fair elections since the fall of the Soviet Union and the regime showed its true face — when a peaceful demonstration for fair elections was shut down violently by the authorities. A moment that should change the country’s history and which enabled the spiral of violence and authoritarianism to unfold.
