Vladislav Mamyshev-Monroe

Selected Works (1989-1992)

As an alternative to television in the Soviet Union under perestroika, PTV developed various television formats, news show, music videos, fictional film and TV series among others, together with the performance artist Mamyshev-Monro serving as host, using drag alter-egos. An important component here was spoofing traditional TV programs. PTV was distributed in the form of VHS cassettes and shown during alternative artist meetings.
