In the context of Synapse 2, at Bageion:
Netting the Work
A performance art project on Gender and Stereotypes
The Netting the Work project *GOMENES* *I*, arises from the examination of gender stereotypes in the form of performative and alternative *fe-male* narrative methods inviting Greek and Austrian artists and theorists to act together.
The Netting the Work project GOMENES, a part of the current Athens Biennale 2015-2017 OMONOIA, arises from the examination of gender stereotypes in the form of performative and alternative fe-male narrative methods inviting Greek and Austrian artists and theorists to act together. Scrutinising and being inspired by the multifaceted European crisis, the purpose of the project is to critically analyse the links and interwoven relations of gender and stereotypes in Greece and Austria, while artistically examining the contemporary impact on wo-men as “embodied, intellectual subjects” through politics, sexuality and dominant social structures. A wide range of performances and two Symposia will constitute the core of this experimental event in an attempt to challenge the borders between theoretical speech and artistic representation, lecturer and performer. The project GOMENES I from the 19th until the 22nd of April, will delve into Omonoia square, trying to be part and trans-form the urban environment of the surrounding area.
+++The project is funded by the Federal Chancellery of Austria and by the Austrian Embassy in Athens. It is sponsored by Ktima Stavropoulou, VirtusTech and O Allos Anthropos.
+++Netting the Work is a platform initiated by Rilène Markopoulou and Eva Giannakopoulou
