Short Psychogeographic Film Festival, screenings and C.A.S.A. performances on the 18th of November 21.00 - 6.00, and the 19th of November 21.00-6.00, at the Occupied self-organised theater EMPROS.
With a short introduction by Pirate Cinema Berlin: "Tracing a small number of (mostly historic) strategies for the reappropriation of both urban space and moving images".
In the context of the Pirate Cinema Berlin short Psychogeographical Film Festival in Athens, Dimitra Mitsaki (C.A.S.A / Collectiva Balkana) curates a series of participatory performance art and new-media works within the thematic framework of open-source, technological mediation and copy-left. Participating artists: Tizo All (Brazil) / Kostas Voulgaris (Greece) / Tomas Diafas (Greece).
Kostas Voulgaris creates a script-less interactive video-work in collaboration with the visual artist Dimitra Mitsaki. The "rights" of the resulting film pass from one to the other to be given over finally to the public via the internet.
The development of the work by Tomas Diafas addresses the question "Can you survive by producing art for the starving? / how much does a socially engaging art-work cost? / Who sets the price? / Who converts it into a masterpiece and where must it be exhibited in order for it to be given prominence?
Begging for nothing - begging to reproduce a picture of reality. No picture - pictures of pity - save - no money ! Do more pictures of no money ! Save - no pictures.
