May 22, 2017
Today was my birthday, so we decided to go and have a swim in the Mediterranian and to have lunch on the beach. At the fair there appeared to be much more public then the day before and in between we celebrated with cake, beer and wine. It was a joyful day for everyone!
Our German neighbours from Berlin bought me a delicious Citronentorte
which was thouroughly enjoyed by everyone, including Petri from Kallio Kunsthalle
Meanwhile the conference had started about the situation of the cultural sector in Greece, lots of local heavy’s present
It was opened by Artemis Potamianou, who miraculously organised Platforms Project 2017 within two months after beïng kicked out of Art Athina for dubious reasons.
KRAATZ in the meanwhile changed their booth again
with a nice intimate wall on the side
Which combines beautifully with Ellen Rodenberg’s work at the EX-MÊKH booth
My own installation also has its merits in the details
and Greeks are particularly enthousiastic about Malieveld, probably because the atmosphere is exotic to them
Ellen Rodenberg, our “communications manager” had a lot of work today
And this poster of the guerilla girls that I missed at the entrance shows engagement on a different level!
