Yaroslav Mogutin


Yaroslav Mogutin (b. 1974) is a New York-based Russian author and multi-media artist. Accused in 1995 of ‘malicious hooliganism with exceptional cynicism and extreme insolence’, ‘inflaming social, national, and religious division’, ‘propaganda of brutal violence, psychic pathology, and sexual perversions’, he became the target of three highly publicized criminal cases carrying a potential prison sentence of up to seven years and was granted political asylum in the US with the support of Amnesty International and PEN American Center. He is a past winner of the Andrei Belyi Prize for Literature (2000).
