Performance artist close to nature

Kukkia was a performance group that existed publicly from autumn 2004 to summer 2008. We created several performances in festivals, private events and site-specific works. For the publication in 2009 we we asked John Grzinich and Evelyn Müürsepp, the organisers of the Postsovhkoz04 festival in MoKS, Jonimatti Joutsijärvi, poet and and witness of many of the performances, Dwi Setianto, a visual artist and collaborator and Franco ‘Bifo’ Berardi, a media philosopher and activist, to present their thoughts on these performance practices, in early 2000s.
