Sun 27 September 2015 - part of The Shock of Victory events programme,
Artists Joanna Peace and Serra Tansel spent June and July this year in Athens, Greece, as witnesses to and participants in a time of intense political activity. Putting their bodies amongst many other bodies at protests and rallies and around tables - on the night of the referendum on 5th July 2015 and on many other nights - was an emotional and politicising experience for them both.
For this event, as part of The Shock of Victory Forum, the artists have invited people from a range of backgrounds and professions to contribute writing, images, music, film, objects and poetry that reflect upon, question or re-imagine the events of summer 2015 in Greece. These people are mostly Greek, though not all, and based in Athens, though some are now back in their respective European countries. What connects them is that they shared this time in Athens with Joanna and Serra.
Joanna and Serra are creating an online publication featuring all of the material contributed to this event, which will be available to view in the coming weeks.
