Oyan, Qazaqstan! (Wake Up, Kazakhstan!)

Paris, France · Curating

Dilda is an independent curator and art critic from Almaty, Kazakhstan currently based in Paris, France. Dilda’s field of interests lies at the intersection of art and politics as well as practices of self-organisations and grassroot-initiatives.

In March 2019, after Kazakhstan’s first president Nursultan Nazarbayev resigned, she initiated an organised activity together with Suinbike Suleimenova and other Almaty-based artists and art enthusiasts combining artistic and political activism. These actions subsequently led to the creation of Oyan, Qazaqstan! (Wake Up, Qazaqstan!) civic movement for political reforms in June 2019.
