Violeta Marchenkova is a self-proclaimed Russian spy and a moving image artist. She documents Devil’s Dyke Nights and sometimes makes films that blur the lines of diary, fiction, and cultural critique.
Devils’ Dyke Network is an inclusive platform in Brighton for poets, performers and artists. The Network showcases older and newer talents amongst feminist women, gender non-binary, lesbian and queer identified people of different origins and identities – focusing on artists who have had difficult or complicated access to performing in other spaces. The Network arose from a collective desire to create a non-judgemental space for artists and audiences to grow, share, and amplify their stories, and as a strategic space from which to make politics.
