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.

Haags Hoogtij was als vanouds weer druk en vond onder een goed gesternte plaats. Uw verslaggever had zelf verplichtingen en kon dus niet echt een ronde doen, maar ik heb toch geprobeerd nog wat dingen te zien waarbij de nadruk lag op performance zoals u hier kunt zien. Die performance vond voornamelijk plaats in The Hague Youth Factory, HYF, die zich onder de oude Riva-garage aan de Jan Hendrikstraat bevindt. Een verrassend gevarieerd programma dat werd gecurateerd door P.S. die ambities hebben voor performance in Den Haag.

This is an oversight of the to my taste most interesting initiatives at the Platforms Project of Art Athína:

Today, saturday, was a very busy day: there was an unending stream of visitors goïng past our booth and in the afternoon we were part of Talks, a part of Art Athena in which discussions and lectures were pesented to an interested audience. Together with three other initiatives from Holland we tried to give an idea of our artistic practice. The space was not crowded but the talks were received well. As for EX-MÊKH: Greek artists wondered about how we financed all our activities. The city of Den Haag and especially STROOM, the bureau that executes cultural politics of the city, is very active in facilitating artistic endeavour. In spite of the national budget cuts artists in Den Haag have serious advantages because of the policy of this institution. On the other hand a project like the Malieveld does not cost a cent, it just takes energy to go to the Malieveld every week, to create something there and to discuss it. George Oreopoulos, the mediator of the talks wanted to know how high the tension would get between the three participators in EX-MÊKH during our projects, but I could reassure him: though discussions can get fierce we are and will stay good friends which helps a lot to get results. The other initiatives: IS-Projects from Leiden, the Tupajumi-Foundation from Rotterdam and kunstenaarsinitiatief Elders from Den Haag also showed their activities of which the first two are not only national. Elders from Den Haag is still young, but they do strive for more international exposure trying to get attention to the quality of perception of art. here you wil find some pictures:
