Alexei Kuzmich is a Belarusian performance artist who is famous for provocative political art actions: "On polling day in the Belarusian presidential elections on 9 August, the performance artist undressed himself at his local polling station in Minsk, sticking his polling card — which he’d emblazoned with a phallus — onto his bare chest" (https://www.calvertjournal.com/articles/show/12065/belarusian-police-brutality-protest-minsk-performance-artist-alexei-kuzmich). After his performances on the election date, police broke into his home and arrested him. He has spent 3 days in jail being violently beaten. Belarusian authorities continue to look for him even after his release. Aleksei is now forced to go into exile and is in desperate need of your financial support. All funds will be used to help the artist to survive!!!!
