Geometry of Fear – Stefanos Tsivopoulos (2012)

Tsivopoulos’ Geometry of Fear (2012) documents the interior of the Greek Parliament in 2012. At this time, on the verge of an economic collapse, two successive national elections on 10 May and 17 June left Greece without government for 37 days. For the first time, no sessions were held in the Greek Parliament, its plenary hall left empty. Geometry of Fearregisters the hall for political representation in this lengthy moment of stillness, its silence an implication of the transnational turmoil surrounding it.

Fragments of Repair: Repair & Listen

Throughout the duration of the project Fragments of Repair, Kader Attia engages in creating a new eponymous work in the form of a gradually unfolding podcast and sound installation in twelve parts, titled Repair & Listen. Drawing on transcultural epistemologies and lived experiences, the podcast investigates “repair” as a concrete practice to counter the psychological impact of living through a pandemic. The episodes of the podcast will become available on this page, throughout the duration of Fragments of Repair.
