"about, by, through, towards, despite" is a podcast series on different aspects of the independent Athens art scene. Eleven artists, curators and critics were invited to contribute their thoughts, experiences and critical positions, each with a different focus. Produced for the program "p o s t documenta: contemporary arts as territorial agencies", this series provides a multilayered imprint of the local scene in the aftermath of documenta14.
"Thinking (out loud, in Athens) about art and institutions", Alkisti Efthimiou wonders whether it is possible for a woman to find her natural voice within the institutional frameworks of the western art world. Discussing her involvement with large-scale cultural institutions in Greece, she explores the inherent tensions between feminist and institutional practices, the affective realities of art work, exhaustion and identity crisis, and potential lines of flight.
