THE SOFT POWER LECTURES (1/6): “Athens-Oberhausen. The Energy of Two Cities”

ACTOPOLIS ATHENS (1/6): “Athens-Oberhausen. The energy of two cities” is the first in a series of six performative lectures, organized by the Temporary Academy of Arts (PAT) / ΠΡΟΣΩΡΙΝΗ ΑΚΑΔΗΜΙΑ ΤΕΧΝΩΝ.

Co-curator of this mobile academy, Elpida Karaba will begin with a self-reflexive and critical exploration of the conditions in which art, culture and discourse take place as well as the journey of PAT to the Actopolis Production Lab in Oberhausen, Germany.
This first event will raise a number of questions: Where does the assumption that the crisis produces creative subjects and “creative cities” come from? How are narratives of contemporary urban centers as “energies” constructed, cashed in the symbolic capital market and conform to regulatory urban projects?

The first part of "The Soft Power Lectures" will take place at State of Concept, Athen's first non-profit gallery and consultancy for young artist.

Besides PAT’s performance lecture, artworks by Constantinos Ηadzinikolaou, Panos Sklavenitis and Anastasia Douka will be presented:

"The poem begins with the unloving sun"
by Panos Sklavenitis

"Fire Walker 2"
by Constantinos Ηadzinikolaou

"Queen Makita"
by Anastasia Douka
