Walk and zine workshop
Elpidos 13, Viktoria-Platz, 4–8 pm

We look at botanical illustrations and use the technique of nature printing to make an A5 zine (a small hand-made publication). In the process we invent new names for these wild greens, which are much more than “mauvaises herbes” (bad seeds). Join us for an afternoon of looking at the overlooked.
Jonas Mekas, Reminiszenzen aus Deutschland (1971/1993, bearbeitet 2012), Reminiscences of a Journey to Lithuania (1972)
Griechisches Filmarchiv (Tainiothiki), 8 pm

Reminiszenzen aus Deutschland is a non-chronological presentation of the filmmaker’s time in German forced labor camps and displaced person camps, a story that begins in 1944 and continues until 1949.
Reminiscences of a Journey to Lithuania is a diary film accompanied by a voice-over and features highly personal footage filmed in different times and places over the course of the filmmaker’s life.

Yannis Hamilakis and Arnisa Zeqo, Synantiseis #7: documenta 12: Is Modernity Our Antiquity?
Filopappou Hill, Pikionis Paths and Pavilion, Filopappou Hill, 8–9:30 pm
Starting at the pavilion

Is modernity our antiquity? This was a question posed by documenta 12 in 2007. In light of the social, political, and aesthetic/artistic developments of the intervening years, it is worth returning to this question now, since it invites us to reflect on modernity as an archaeological period, as a phase that can be examined through its materiality and temporality.

Wednesday May 31

Friday June 2–Sunday June 4

Kostas Tsioukas (choreographer), Myrto Kontoni, Tassos Koukoutas, and Kostas Tsioukas (performers),В Collective Exhibition for a Single Body (2017)
Archaeological Museum of Piraeus, 12–2:30 pm

Scores (ongoing) by Pierre Bal-Blanc, Marie Cool Fabio Balducci, Yael Davids, Maria Eichhorn, Anna Halprin, Ashley Hans Schierl, Maria Hassabi, David Lamelas, Prinz Gholam, Kostas Tsioukas, Annie Vigier & Franck Apertet (les gens d’Uterpan), Lois Weinberger, Artur Żmijewski.
Performed among the audience of the museum, this work not only suberts the normative behavior for the body in public but also demonstrates the perverse character of the norm itself, as imposed on the body by society. The tempo of the performance remains aleatory. Appearances are spontaneous and the repetition continuous.

Vassia A. Vanezi, Weaving together
Elpidos 13, Viktoria Square, 6–8 pm

Weaving together is a common work. It is about coming together, sitting together, talking together, eating and drinking together, making together, bringing our lives, our cultures together, sharing words together, sharing our stories and history together, confessing our pain and fears, our hopes. It is about companionship. It is about gathering. It is about human condition.
