Lyuba Matyunina | Today’s Makers #2

Video art challenging reality

We Are Public members are supporting our makers with hearts. Join them?

Together with 14 other makers, Lyuba Matyunina was supported through We Are Public’s In Art We Trust Fund from 15 May until 14 June. € 35.000 was distributed amongst these makers to enable them to keep creating new performances, poetry, music and choreographies. This wouldn’t be possible without our members and an extra donation by BankGiro Loterij Fonds. Thank you!

From 15 June onwards we will support a new selection of makers. Read more about them and send them your love here.

About Lyuba Matyunina

Lyuba Matyunina takes her audience on wild journeys through her experimental documentaries and video installations. Absurdist scenes, magnificent costumes and extraordinary characters; her films take on mythical proportions.

Yet, one can always find a link to reality through the addressed themes. In the documentary ‘I Am a Tool of Gentrification’, Lyuba dissects Amsterdam’s gentrification. Due to skyrocketing real estate prices, the original population is driven further and further away from the city centre. What is the role of the artist in this process? Currently, Lyuba is collaborating with artist Konstantin Guz on a platform called HOMESTER: a virtual gallery striving to establish new ways of both creating and exhibiting art.

Share your fairy tale

This dark period seems to be the perfect occasion for Lyuba to collect your mythical stories and curate them into an archive of highlights. Your favourite fairy tale, a story your grandparents read to you before going to bed, a masterpiece written by yours truly or a detailed dream that has always stuck with you. The stranger, the better! ⁠Share your favourite mythical story with Lyuba.

In Art We Trust

We Are Public will keep investing in arts and culture. Now more than ever! That is why our membership will work a little differently for the time being:

✔️ Every month our curators will select 15 makers
✔️ Our main focus will be on independent makers, who have been hit hard by the current circumstances. Makers we think are brilliant and want to enable to keep working. Makers who we want to list in our programme again when the time comes.
✔️ As a member you are able to heart makers on our website to express your support.
This month we will distribute € 35.000 between 15 makers.

Join us. We need your art-loving heart!
