2. In Memoriam Alla Girik (Kazakhstan)

As it was known only in January, already in November 2006
Alla Girik, a multi-media artist from Rudnik (Kazakstan)

Alla Girik worked on new forms of representations in film and video,
and digital art in general. She participated with a collaborative
multi-media work ( "Warning: Women) together with Oksana Shatalova
in VideoChannel's "Gender Identity" and
CologneOFF I "Identity Scapes"
