Russia’s underground artists are pioneering new forms of risky,  highly public dissent, aimed at mocking Putin, Medvedev and the  political class.
Voina (“War”), a collective from St. Petersburg, is responsible for some  of the most daring art actions. “They declared a war,” Anna Nemtsova, Moscow correspondent for Newsweek, tells Studio 360’s Kurt Andersen, “to state corruption, injustice, and the political  regime.”
Last year Voina painted a 210-foot phallus on a drawbridge facing the Federal Security Bureau, the former KGB.

Thank you, PRI, for introducing me to KGB penis art.
