Storm of the White House (Moscow) Favorite 



Nov 6 2008


Moscow, Russia

Voina art collective members covertly brought a large laser projector into the attic room of a hotel located across the street from the Russian White house (also called the Russian Parliament Building). From there they projected a large image of a skull and bross bones across the front of the white house building. Other group members on the ground then stormed the building gates and successfully entered the secure zone in front of the building. "After holding ground and destroying a piece of video surveillance activists left the White House unharmed, with stunned federal troopers unable to catch up with the speed of the Voina attack, appearing minutes later" (Source 1). The action symbollically took place on the 91st anniversary of the Red October.
