with Snehta Residency

8–11 pm
Kiosk in Kypseli, Athens

At the core of the event on the 16th of July is Snehta Residency’s overarching mission which is to foster new ways of interpreting the city through the activation or the reuse of inherent qualities and energies that become embodied in the artwork. That knowledge stems from the experience of an ongoing five-year long residency program that has so far allowed 60 international artists to come and work in Kypseli, Athens.

Responding to the A-Letheia project in Fokionos Negri, Kypseli, Snehta is implementing a number of artistic actions at the kiosk highlighting its historical importance in the neighborhood as a mercantile and community space but also to celebrate it as a modern day sculptural monument.

Artistic interventions are developed by: Amalia Charikiopoulou, Augustus Veinoglou (artist, Snehta founding director), Becky Campbell (artist, Snehta coordinator), Grashina Gabelmann and Judith Sönnicken, Athanasios Gatos, Campus Novel and Maëlle Gross with the project FILIRA.

Tabletop Utopias is an event taking place at KIOSK KSOIK, resulting of a collaboration between ZUT Residency artists and Snehta Residency. The event seeks to open up the discussions around Utopia generated by ZUT artists to the community of Kypseli: it will run as an open community meal, using the dinner table as a platform for gathering and conversation.

KIOSK KSOIK is an initiative of Augustus Veinoglou, Snehta residency director, developed for the A-Letheia project.

The event is part of the gradual unfolding of the A-Letheia project as conceived by artist Anton Kats and developed together with Ifigenia Papadatou, taking place over the 100 days of documenta 14 in Athens. The project involves collaborative events with local groups, neighbors, and members of the community surrounding the kiosks.
