Omdat vrienden van mij nieuwsgierig waren naar Château La Coste ben ik er nog een keer naar toe gegaan. We hadden nog niet alles gezien en die tentoonstelling van Tracy Emin, Surrounded by You, intrigeerde me wel. In een prachtige ruimte die in een aangepaste loods is haar werk te zien. Het is mooi dat daar nu ook solo’s van kunstenaars getoond gaan worden Bij deze nog een indruk van de verzameling en het werk van Emin.

Last day in Athens and energy is fading. It is a cold rainy day. We walk to the Museum of Cycladic Art and on the way we see the changing of the guard near the Parliament on Syntagma square: theatrical humbug, especially in the light of what is happening everywhere! Then we find the museum which has a beautiful collection of sculptures and other artifacts. By chance, there is an exhibition of Cy Twombly and archeological highlights from other musea which we all like. After this we buy some souvenirs and decide to walk the path around the Acropolis once more. We have wine on the way and an early dinner: our plane leaves at 09.00h next day!

This day we decided to visit the ancient Agora, a public place where the ancient Greeks came together. The Agora is situated in front of the Acropolis on which it shows a magnificent view. In the restored Stoa of Attalos you can find a museum with sculptures and archeological findings from the terrain.
After a simple lunch we decided to visit the Athens Conservatoire once more for those who didin’t visit it yet. I appeared to have missed part of the Documenta exhibition there so for me too it was worth while. After that we were to have dinner with our German friends near there, but alas, that didn’t work out.

Platforms Project 2017 has finished, but there are still a few things to be seen. Last year I missed the newly built Museum of the Acropolis so our company decided to visit that area. One can walk all the way around the Acropolis on a path that passes a lot of antique sites. In the back are the two antique theatres and the new museum, built by Renzo Piano who also built the new Stavros Niarchos cultural centre on the coast. After lunch we went to Pireus to see the performances beïng helt in the Pireus Archaeological Museum, but that museum closes at 15.00 h, so we took the beautiful walk along the east coast back to the city.
