R.E.P. Group

R.E.P. Group (Revolutionary Experimental Space) aus Kiew, Ukraine,  werden die nächsten zwei Monate im LIA leben und arbeiten. Die Gruppe, die bereits seit mehreren Jahren zusammen arbeitet, ist in Deutschland noch relativ unbekannt. Mit ihren Aktionen kritisieren sie den (internationalen) Kunstbetrieb und unsere heutige Konsumgesellschaft.
