Oleg Kireev: Militsia in Amsterdam

In 2002 Kireev executed a street performance in Amsterdam, as part of the Debates & Credits art project co-organised by De Balie, "Militsia in Amsterdam". The report aired on Amsterdam TV as a "Study in the Mechanisms of Obedience".
Kireev patrolled Amsterdam streets for several days, followed by a camera, dressed up as a typical Moscow Militsia officer, checking personal identity documents of random people on the street. The level of compliance he encountered was astounding.
