A group of activists creates street art in Armenia. Due to their opposition to the state, their work is usually erased immediately. Narek Aleksanyan, a photojournalist, documents what they do and publishes the photographs on the web. The video documenting this process was shot in in Yerevan, the Armenian capital, in November 2015.
Counterstrike, the Activist Group
Counterstrike is a group that has created many of the graffiti and paintings shown in the video. It is concerned with current political and social issues in Armenia and chooses mainly public spaces for their street art. Artak (featured in the video), Herbert and other members of the group have been detained by the police several times and charged for installing a banner against president Serzh Sargsyan in front of the parliament building.
