AES Group was formed in 1987 by con­cep­tu­al archi­tects Tatiana Arza­maso­va and Lev Evzovich and mul­ti-dis­ci­pli­nary design­er Evge­ny Svy­atsky. The group expand­ed with the addi­tion of pho­tog­ra­ph­er Vladimir Frid­kes in 1995, becom­ing AES+F.

AES+F is known for their the­atri­cal and ornate aes­thet­ic, which unfolds across sweep­ing mul­ti-chan­nel video ani­ma­tions. Their works com­ment on con­sumerism, pop­u­lar cul­ture and mass media, reli­gion and luxury.

AES+F came to inter­na­tion­al promi­nence with the film tril­o­gy Last Riot, The Feast of Tri­mal­chio, and Alle­go­ria Sacra. Unit­ed as The Tril­o­gy, this series was most recent­ly pre­sent­ed at the Mar­tin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin, and Moscow Manège.
