Maskirovka, 2017

Tobias Zielony‘s new work produced in Ukraine between 2016 and 2017 focuses on the underground queer and techno scene in Kyiv in the aftermath of the 2013 revolution. 

The term ‚maskirovka‘ describes a tradition of Russian warfare tactics of deception. The so called „green men“ that occupied Crimea and helped pro-Russian forces in Eastern Ukraine were in fact Russian special forces wearing face masks to hide their identities, starting a hybrid war that was never officially declared.

The recent political developments as well as the Russian interference into the country‘s internal affairs can be seen as a sad travesty in which everything is possible but nothing seems to be real.
