“Re:souvenir” – Exhibition
Viki Zioga & Nikos Kostopoulos
“Reconstitution of a souvenir” by Nikos Kostopoulos and Viki Zioga with the participation of a group of emerging artists and fine art students, takes place in the Byzantine Bath of Thessaloniki and the surrounding area. Using the physical space as a vessel of memories and daily discussions, it investigates the concept of prosthetic memory, as coined by professor Alison Landsberg in her essay “Prosthetic memory: the ethics and politics of memory in an age of mass culture”, and its potential in developing empathy and solidarity towards the Other. The project manifests as a two-days experiential workshop, which will result to an audiovisual presentation, open to the public.
11 /5 14:00 – 22:00
12/5 12:00 – 21:00
