Fredagsmusik: "I can't breathe"

Pussy Riot har gjort en video till deras låt "I can't breath". Den är dedikerat till Eric Gardner och alla "som drabbas av statsterror - dödade, kvävda, förstörda av krig och polisbrutalitet - till politiska fångar och till de som kämpar på gatorna för en förändring."

Pitchfork har en artikel om och intervju med Pussy Riot. Artikeln inleds:
Inside a small room of the Long Island City, N.Y. contemporary art museum MoMA PS1, a work by Pussy Riot has been projected against a white wall on loop since October. It is their raw, vivid, masterfully-edited protest video, "Punk Prayer", the sub-two-minute clip that brought Pussy Riot to global consciousness in 2012, and ultimately sent Nadya Tolokonnikova and Masha Alyokhina to prison. 
Now, at PS1's "Zero Tolerance" exhibit through April 13, Pussy Riot's video sits alongside work by a lineage of political artists who have fought for free speech, gay rights, and equality around the world, such as Yoko Ono and John Lennon (Bed Peace), Egypt's Amal Kenawy ("The Silence of Sheep"), Croatia's Igor Grubić ("East Side Story"), Turkey's Halil Altindere ("Wonderland"), and ACT UP New York. For the first time, Pussy Riot's work has been acknowledged by a major museum for what it is: art.
