“Artlabyerevan” political art group (Hovhannes Margaryan, Vardan Jaloyan, Olya Azatyan, Artur Petrosyan, Ara Petrosyan) was created after the split of the “Art laboratory” group.

Our goal is to continue activist art practice, support activist groups, organize seminars and discussions about political contemporary art, participate in the social and political movement, innovative social and cultural initiatives, develop strategies with political-social groups to find a way out of the current situation.

“Artlabyerevan” aims to combine political and art research, explore and discover the hidden mechanisms that contribute to the formation of authoritarian, exploitative and corrupt systems.

In art practices our group is oriented towards relational and participatory aesthetics denying the illusive function of art.

We are for the Event considering it a creative action of the multitudes. We are ready to collaborate with all the people and non-governmental organizations whose activities don’t contradict with the principles mentioned above.
