“Space Revolution” | talk by Augustus Veinoglou | micro-conference at Athens Biennale Synapse 2
Tuesday 31st May | 17:00 – 18:30 | Bageion
“Space revolution” developed as a theme that explores the notion of empty and unused space in the city of Athens as well as its potential uses as sources of rejuvenation or that of an inspiration of a greater narrative for the city.”
This is an opportunity to imagine the city in the near or far future through the lens of its spatial poetics, politics, real estate and art.
Coming from different professional and working backgrounds the participants of this micro-conference will give us an insight of their experience and understanding of built environment as they talk about the specific relationships, the possible contradictions and potentials that emerge from existing and working within it.
The conference aims to create direct and indirect, ambiguous and concrete associations between disparate concepts and ideas that on that day hopefully will over arch and conspire towards a Space Revolution.
Space revolution is an ad hoc micro conference initiated by artist Augustus Veinoglou for the Athens Biennalle, within the framework of Synapse 2.
The conference will result in short texts that will be become available online. Presentations are roughly if not specifically based on these original texts.
