@zubovmo is an artist. Born in St. Petersburg, he spent many school-day afternoons handling conflicts over the neighborhood kids’ protection racket and chasing heroin addicts out of the stairwell with the leg of a stool. He went on to graduate from the Herzen State Pedagogical University, studying Psychology. In 2011, Zubov founded iiihop (from the Russian acronym for “The You’re Just Walking Along When Bam! Poetic Brotherhood”), with which he staged theatrical/literary performances, including as part of the Manifesta 10 parallel program (St. Petersburg).
