Two Worlds: Ai Stratis.
13-23 August 2021
Museum of Democracy, Public space of Ai Stratis

In the most isolated island of the Aegean Sea, a live artist performs a series of actions, exploring the relationship between the natural habitat and the historical memory of the former island of exile. 

 

The exhibition will take place at the Museum of Democracy and the public space of Ai Stratis, a remote border island which used to be an exile place for thousands of Greece's political dissidents. Today, the island is included in Natura 2000, a network of protected areas covering Europe's most valuable species and habitats. 

 

The event will open on Friday the 13th of August 2021 with a live performance at the Museum of Democracy, the first Greek public museum dealing with a period of recent Greek history of crucial political and social importance. The exhibition will continue with a series of durational site specific performances at the community of the island, creative workshops and the screening of the film 'Stratis' at the projection space of the museum.
