After a morning of finishing touches, a press-conference by directors Artemis Potamianou and Michalis Argyrouat the press makes a round. At 19.00 h the fair is opened for invited guests and even before the crowd starts streaming in. The amount of visitors is twice that of last year which is what you would expect seeing people strolling by.
EX-MÊKH’s Ellen Rodenberg has been asked to manage the children’s educational department and instruct the volunteers for workshops, tours of the fair and preparing the workshop space. That takes a lot of her time after EX-MÊKH’S booth is finished
An impression of the day, with first the installation by EX-MÊKH as it was finished:

This year again, EX-MÊKH participates in Platforms project in Athens. It takes place in the Nikos Kessanlis-exhibition hall of the Athens School for Fine Arts for the second time after Documenta resided there. Art Athína will not take place this year and during this fair students will show their work in open studios. Expectations are high so we start setting up our installation. We decided to show the individual works of all three of us in one large installation, in perfect equilibrium. In this way we illustrate the way EX-MÊKH has worked for 13 years already: we developed an understanding of each others needs and fortes. Here you will find an impression of the building up:

Today I visited some of the stands at Platforms Project 2018 to check out what they were doïng, here are some things I liked:
After having dinner in the hip area near the Keramikos subwaystation we went to Beton 7 which hosts an international show by IS-projects from Leiden (NL) under the name “RNOP – HELLENIKON” and “Doldrums”, a video installation by Jenn E. Norton.

On this second day I had the opportunity to see some things in Athens, so I decided to go to the Byzantine Museum to try and understand somthing of the history of this region and, having some time left, to visit the cradle of democracy on the Philopappos hill which itself is called the Mouseion, the hill of the muses. After this I went back to the ASFA to take part in our project for Platforms Project.
