Experiments in news and arts with Jude Cowan Montague. This week: artist and media archivist Vicky Zigras reflects on the visual arts and how these are being affected by the economic situation and government debt-crisis in her home country of Greece. She follows in the footsteps of an artistic family and discusses the work of her mother, Dora Zigras, alongside that of well-known contemporary artists such as Theodoros Stamos, Miltos Manetas and Lydia Venieri, and the filmmaker Theo Angelopoulos.
