“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. Produced for “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.
Queer visual artist and filmmaker Vassiliki Lazaridou’s podcast pays tribute to the queer arts communities of Athens. These craft their shape into existence through creative processes of mutual empowerment and caregiving, distancing themselves from art-world conventions. The podcast features original music by Bitchy 101, the queer pop punk band that Vasiliki is part of, and a statement by Vassilia Kaga, co-curator of the upcoming show "COVEN: witchcraft for love politics" at FAC Research Athens.
