SELECTED WORKS



Exhibition, Benaki Museum, Athens 2014

The Depression Era Project inhabits the urban & social landscapes of the Crisis. A collective storytelling experiment, among 36 artists, photographers, filmmakers, writers, designers and academics, it records the Greek city & its outer regions, the private lives of outcasts, the collapse of the Public, the emergence of the Commons and snapshots of the everyday in a mosaic of images & texts. The project aims to produce an open media platform & critical archive nurturing informal histories and new projects. An architectural promenade, at the Benaki Museum in Athens, connected 34 Art Projects -240 prints & 5 videos, a series of Thresholds, Rooms & Recesses, and 5 autonomous Stations of printed, spoken or recorded text in transition spaces & custom-made furniture. The exhibition design reflected the work and history of the collective on current History: its storytelling created moments of sequenced dialogue among works and media, making breaks and bringing short closure to the idea of Crisis.
