Artist Talk: Lesia Pcholka, IASPIS resident artist in Stockholm visits Gothenburg

Welcome to a conversation with the Belarusian artist Lesia Pcholka. Her practice includes photography, video, installations and archival work. In her research, she preserves, analyzes and examines notions of collective memory by collecting local archives and examining memories from the Soviet era, reflecting on contemporary social issues and processing political traumas.
