ACTOPOLIS Micro-residency – Glykeria Stathopoulou
16.06.2016. 20:00

Goethe-Institut, Knez MIhailova 50

For the Belgrade ACTOPOLIS micro-residencies Glykeria Stathopoulou, one half of the Actopolis Athens curatorial team, will present the curatorial concept and actualization of the Actopolis project Athens. This presentation will be open for communication with Belgrade audience.

For Actopolis, The Temporary Academy of Arts (PAT) will organise a series of Performative Lectures that will attempt to produce a control material around the discourse on the regulation, gentrification and branding of cities, located at the centre or on the peripheries of European restructuring. The lectures will take place in institutional and extra-institutional spaces, with a mixed public including distinguished and younger guests and will culminate in a pluralistic show on a basketball court. How can a country, a city, an academy exercise soft power in order to hegemonise the discourse around itself and everything surrounding it? Lectures, talks, discussions, projects, apparatuses and various other material will attempt to gather and organise the discourse that is produced around the exotic Athens of the crisis and creativity, an Athens that is currently receiving thousands of immigrants and that is set to host the next Documenta. 

The Temporary Academy of Arts (PAT) for professional and amateur education is a mobile academy of arts and at the same time an art project in experimental education which offers higher art studies in areas where there is an interest in alternative, experimental and self-organised education in applied and fine arts.
