1981

She was born in Minsk (BSSR, today the Republic of Belarus).

From 1997 to 2000 he studied at the Minsk Art College. A. Glebova, Minsk. From 2000 to 2004 - student of the State Academy of Arts Karlsruhe, Germany. From 2004 to 2008 she studied at the Academy of Fine Arts, Frankfurt am Main, Germany (class of Martha Rosler).

On individual specific projects, Naprushkina interacts with local initiatives, thus strengthening the voice of each other's counter-propaganda. The newspapers “Convincing Victory: Two Stories as It Really Was” and “Belarusian Self-Government”, 2011-2012, made by the artist, were thrown into mailboxes by activists in Belarus. Coloring book “My dad is a policeman. What does he do at work? (2011) Marina made as part of a campaign against violence against women, and it was also distributed through non-fiction channels.

“Park for the Community” in Lublin (2013, as part of the art festival in the public space Union) the artist created together with the artist Pavel Altkhamer, the women’s association “Selchanka” from the Belarusian village of Zalesye and enthusiastic assistants from Ukraine, Warsaw and Berlin.

The creation of works based on a specific context and responding to a specific socio-political problem is one of Naprushkina's activities. Naprushkina sees an even more important task in the formation of sustainable, viable initiatives that would be able to act long-term and autonomously. Her "Institute for the Future" in Minsk is an educational platform at the intersection of politics, art and feminism. In Berlin, she organized and leads an initiative among neighbors to support refugees ( neuenachbarschaft.wordpress.com ). Refugees arriving in Germany and preparing for trials can benefit from Marinina's Refugees' Library, an archive of cases handled by the Berlin courts (refugeeslibrary.wordpress.com ).

"Infamous people", as Foucault called them, those "who, if they learn about, then only at the moment of their intersection with the authorities" - are the main characters and accomplices of Naprushkina's works. It helps to hear and articulate their voices.
