Take a memory of Greece

Organized by Léo Ravy

It is easy to get lost in a city of ghosts, subtle caricatures of the something that was. Authenticity is long gone or perhaps never existed in the first place. What we are left with are new concepts that define our history through hyperlink structures, big data and block chains. The naivety of the algorithm leaves no room for foolish interpretation. It only does what Herodotus, the Father of Lies, could not. It is difficult navigating the vast sea of fragmented information when both the truth and the lie has become familiar instances. In fact, how are we even supposed to navigate in this city? Were we in fact briefly narrating our own authentic experience?

What remains?

Tell tales slightly defined by their common physical connection to the space, Stoa42. Their upbringing firstly rendered by all the things we experienced on the side. We came, we saw and we left. But, what was the point in the first place?

We are a group consisting mainly of artists and designers from the The Dirty Art Department / Sandberg Institute, based in Amsterdam. We arrived in Athens as a self-organised collective two months ago. Over the course of five weeks we will present a series of works and events at Stoa42. This is the finissage.
