Chto Delat (What is to be done?) is a collective founded in early 2003 in Petersburg by a workgroup of artists, critics, philosophers, and writers with the goal of merging political theory, art, and activism. The artistic activity is realised across a range of media, from video and theatre plays, to radio programmes and murals. It includes art projects, seminars, and public campaigns. The works of the collective are characterised by the use of alienation effects, surreal scenery, typicality, and always case-by-case analyses of concrete social and political struggles. In 2013, Chto Delat initiated an educational platform called School of Engaged Art in Petersburg and also runs a space called Rosa’s House of Culture. From its inception, the collective has published an English-Russian newspaper focused on the politicisation of the Russian cultural situation in dialogue with the international context.
