A Walk Through Ancient Miletus

A Walk Through Ancient Miletus

Virtual Reality

The city of Miletus on the western coast of Asia Minor, one of the most important cities in Ionia, comes to life again in the Virtual Reality production
“A Walk Through Ancient Miletus”. This production, in the special environment of immersion of “Tholos”, uses some new technical characteristics, which allow the development of multiple directions of digital life in the virtual space and not a predetermined course.

4 September, 2017 to 31 December, 2022
Info: 

Starting again in September, guided tours are offered in Greek & English for groups.
At the Virtual Reality programme there is a tour at the meninsula and the city of Miletus, as it was 2,000 years ago. Visitors can explore the virtual city and learn about the most important public buildings. Starting from the gate at the Port of the Lions, they enter the sanctuary of Apollo Delphinios. Then, they visit the Ionian Stoa, which housed the stores of the city, the Hellenistic Gymnasium, the North Agora and the Bouleuterion, being able to see even the details of the buildings' architecture. They can “fly” over the city for one last panoramic view of the perfect city planning design, or even “dive” into its port.

Digital Projection

Dinosaurs at Dusk is a 44-min show produced by Mirage3D for digital dome theatres. It is presented at "THOLOS", the Virtual Reality Theater of Hellenic Cosmos.
A learning adventure of a father and his teenage daughter Lucy, who share a fascination for all things that fly.
You’ll travel back in time to meet the pterosaurs and the ancestors of modern-day birds: the feathered dinosaurs. Lucy and her father navigate from continent to continent, looking for clues about the origins of flight.
When time runs out they experience first-hand the cataclysmic “last day” of the dinosaurs.
Science content includes topics such as continental drift, proper motion of stars, asteroids and impacts, extinctions and the convergent development of flight among species.

Twelve art publications in print and digital format compose Pixels created by artists from the “To Pikap Community” in Thessaloniki curated by miss dialectic commissioned and supported by the Goethe-Institut Athen

16 February, 2021 to 16 February, 2022
Info: 

Departing from the interactive installation “The Disappearing Wall,” organized by the Goethe-Institut and presented in different European cities (including Thessaloniki) in Fall 2020, miss dialectic curates Pixels, an art publication that unfolds both as an online and an offline project. With the aim to unravel the connection between Thessaloniki’s urban imprint and its visual arts community, miss dialectic invited twelve artists from the “To Pikap Community” to open a dialogue with quotes that found their place in “The Disappearing Wall.”

The city, architecture and nature, domesticity, sensuality and affection, everyday rituals and ruptures, were only a few of the themes that emerged. Works in progress, drawings, photographs, and collages form the backbone of a collective publication project devised by twelve graphic designers living in Thessaloniki and orchestrated by Post-Spectacular Office. Pixels, comprising twelve hybrid artists’ books, aims to mark a certain moment in the creative history of Thessaloniki.

Each artist, similarly to a single pixel, allows us to experience a sample of their worlds, adding to a fragmented but authentic image.

Curated by: miss dialectic (Klea Charitou, Eleanna Papathanasiadi, Kelly Tsipni-Kolaza)

Artists: Maria Andrikopoulou, Dimosthenis Bogiatzis, Stelios Chatzivasileiou, Fousti Lamé, Sofia Karasavvidou, Giannis Karavasilis, Maria Kriara, Loopo, Ilektra Maipa, Theofanis Nouskas, Theodora Prassa, Stella Tsoumatidou

Publications’ Graphic Design: Andreas Avakoumidis, Elli Christaki, Stergios Galikas, Evelina Garantzioti, Tasos Gkaintatzis, Vasilis Gkountinas, Olympia Kokkorou, Vasilis Kotsikas, Dimitris Lelakis, Achilleas Polychronidis, Juan Solano, Mariza Tsakona

"1821 Before and After" exhibition

"1821 Before and After" exhibition

Exhibition

Under the Patronage of H.E. the President of the Hellenic Republic Ms. Katerina Sakellaropoulou

3 March, 2021 to 7 November, 2021
Info: 
The Benaki Museum, in cooperation with the Bank of Greece, the National Bank of Greece and Alpha Bank, presents a major anniversary exhibition to celebrate the bicentenary of the pivotal year in modern Greek history, 1821, the year when the revolution which resulted in the country’s independence was declared. One thousand and two hundred objects will unfold more than 100 years of history (1770-1870) over 2,500 square metres for 8 months. This fascinating process of national emancipation, beginning before the 1770 ‘Orlov Revolt’ and concluding in the 1880s, will be narrated in ‘1821 before and after’. The exhibition, arranged in three parts and featuring some 1,200 exhibits, will unfold more than 100 years of history across 3,500 square metres over 8 months (from March to November 2021). This will be the first exhibition on modern Greek history of such scale and scope internationally. The narrative will deploy exhibits held in the collections of the three banks and the Benaki Museum, itself a rich repository created on bonds of trust with the families of those who held centre-stage in the Greek Revolution. Loans have also been secured from important museums and private collections in Greece, France and the United Kingdom. Paintings, sculpture, personal items belonging to key revolutionaries, historic documents and heirlooms will be arranged into three sections which will bring to life the progress towards a national revolution (Section I: 1770–1821), the events of the War of Independence and its conclusion (Section II: 1821–1831), as well as the creation of the modern Greek state and its development and operation during its first half-century (Section III: 1831–1870). The "1821 Before and After" exhibition is dedicated to the memory of Angelos Delivorrias and Marinos Geroulanos.

WalkThrough | An interactive virtual tour of Kotsanas Museum

Virtual Exhibition

The technological inventions of the ancient Greeks unfold interactively in front of you!

Heron, Philon, Archimedes, Ktesibios, Pythagoras and Hipparchos invite you to discover the cutting edge technology of antiquity through their inventions.

From the automatic hydraulic clock of Ktesibios to the Antikythera Calculating Mechanism, we observe that the foundations for many conquests of modern civilization, such as steam and gas propulsion, the computer and robotic constructions, had already been laid by the ancient Greek world. Philon’s automatic servant and magic wine jug, Archimedes’ hydraulic screw and so much more, come to illuminate unknown aspects of everyday life in public and private life.

“Is There Something in the Air? / Che cos'è che in aria vola?”

“Is There Something in the Air? / Che cos'è che in aria vola?”

Video

PEEMPIP’s participation in the international translation project titled “Is There Something in the Air? / Che cos'è che in aria vola?”, which was launched by the Bologna Children’s Book Fair 2020 (BCBF) in cooperation with translators and translator associations from all over the world, led to a creative collaboration with audiovisual artists from the fields of music and animation. Upon PEEMPIP’s invitation, young rapper TQR did his magic and created his very own rap song, based on the Greek translation of Roberto Piumini’s poem. Then, the talented graduate students of the Department of Audio & Visual Arts of the Ionian University, Dilena Iliopoulou and Konstantina Gavriilidou picked up the torch, to create an animated video for the song.

A new series of educational programs. Issue No. [1821]

Education

On the occasion of the Bicentennial of the Greek Revolution, the National Library of Greece is introducing a new series of educational programs entitled Issue No. 1821. Print media excerpts of that time, rare documents and manuscripts from the special collections of the National Library of Greece will be used creatively in order to highlight and investigate the Greek Revolution of 1821.

The Issue No. 1821 educational programs, developed for the Greek Libraries Network, will take place between March 2021 and December 2021. Children across Greece are invited to participate in their local Library workshops which were inspired by the archival material of the National Library of Greece.

Freedom is a timeless value. Knowledge of history is essential to achieve and maintain freedom. Let this anniversary be the opportunity, for both children and adults, to search for historical sources, study more thoroughly and gain a deeper understanding of our national identity.

The educational programs are coordinated via the official website of the Greek Libraries Network https://network.nlg.gr/

# RevoltingBodies

# RevoltingBodies

Visual Arts

ATOPOS cvc welcomes Alexis Fidetzis as the main artist for the programme #OccupyAtopos2021, designed to mark the 200 year anniversary of the Greek revolution. Fidetzis will curate the hybrid, ever-evolving project #Revolting Bodies, where his own personal artistic practice will interact with that of invited contributors and collaborators.
The project aims to integrate the Greek Revolution into a broader dialogue about the revolutionary phenomenon that to an extent defined modernity, avoiding the glorious, grand narratives and immersing into the stories of the bodies upon which both the revolutionary action and the mythologies around it are imposed. Bodies defined by gender or race, factual or mythical, tender and brutal, glorified and beheaded. Through these bodies we will see the revolution as something more than an archetypical battle between good and evil. We will investigate the means of turning the individual into a hero and also the revolutionary narrative into a structural element of the national imagination.
#RevoltingBodies will take over the entire physical and virtual space of ATOPOS, transforming its neoclassical building in downtown Athens into its ''Revolutionary headquarters''. A series of installations, actions, workshops and publications will be presented through the participation of theorists and visual artists from Greece and abroad. The project will conclude with a group exhibition that will take place from October to December 2021.

23 April, 2021 to 20 December, 2021
Info: 

#OccupyAtopos is the Residency programme of ATOPOS cvc, curated by Vassilis Zidianakis, co-founder and Artistic Director of the organization. It is interested in the interdisciplinary research and study of the contemporary visual culture of the human body.
The programme consists of a series of residences with workshops that produce site specific installations and exhibitions, publications, lectures and discussions, performances, videos, experimental sounds and other forms of original collaboration. Its mission is to observe and support the creative process of emerging artists, designers, curators and thinkers. It researches and initiates innovative projects of contemporary visual culture in an ‘atopic’ manner.
The word ‘atopos’, from the ancient Greek word ''ἄτοπος'', means out of space and out of the way and refers to that which is strange, unwonted, eccentric and disgusting, but also to the foul and the unclassifiable.
Those who have participated to date have been, amongst others, The Callas, Craig Green, Ren Hang, Bouchra Khalili, Nevin Aladag, Daniel Knorr, Imbrahim Mahama, FYTA, Antigoni Tsagkaropoulou, Aimee Le, Tomashi Jackson.
