mmSymposium Transformations of the Audible
16–18 May 2019, The Hague.
The symposium Transformations of the Audible aims to interrogate the factors and conditions which inform the way in which audibility is constituted. For this purpose it will gather artists, scholars, students and artist researchers from three domains – that of music, the arts and the scholarly field of sound studies – to address how artistic practices dealing with sound are traversed by and simultaneously operate upon the ways in which listening takes place.
Eleni Kamma's presentation, Heard or capable of being heard. Seeing through parrhesiastic dialectical games is scheduled for Saturday, May 18th- KABK Auditorium. It makes part of the panel Voice, Stage and Representation in sound (14:15–15:45).
mmResidency: Art Inside Out
Eleni Kamma will be participating in the upcoming residency on ”Self-care Then and Now” in Varberg (Sweden), a residency programme organised by Art Inside Out.
Art Inside Out is offering a residency on the theme “Self-care then and now” in the health resort of Varberg. The residency aims at an artistic activation of the heritage of the health resort, connected to various cultural sites, life stories, objects, and archive material, which also gives an opportunity for reflection about the ways history is written. How has the perception of self-care, health, and well-being evolved from the establishment of the health resort until today? What is the meaning of cultural, psychosocial and socio-economic perspectives for self-care?
Art Inside Out is offering an eight-week residency for three artists during 2019, with the following schedule: April 29–May 12 (research), May 13–June 9 (production), August 26–September 8 (presentation).
At the end of the residency, there will be public presentations of the artistic processes on-site in Varberg municipality as well as other places in Region Halland and Sweden. Various public meetings will occur during the entire residency period.
More information on the Art Inside Out website.
In this group exhibition at Kunstraum am Schauplatz, Vienna, Eleni Kamma presents her video GEORGOFILI, a 27 minutes HD film produced in 2012, for the purposes of which she conducted research during her residency at the Villa Romana, Florence, as an international visiting artist in 2010 and 2011.
Participating artists: Amalia Vekri, Alexandros Georgiou, Maria Georgoula, Zoe Giabouldaki, Dimitris Ioannou, Eleni Kamma, Nikos Kanarelis, Chrysanthi Koumianaki, Markela Kontaratou, Karolina Krasouli, Konstantinos Kotsis, Margarita Myrogianni, Theo Michael, Myrto Xanthopoulou, Nina Papaconstantinou, Tereza Papamichali, Georgia Sagri, George Stamatakis, Stefania Strouza, Evangelia Spiliopoulou, Alexandros Tzannis, Panos Tsagaris, Dimitris Foutris, Savvas Christodoulides

Jubilee, platform for artistic research and production
Jubilee was first established in 2012 as a dialogue among artists and cultural workers who consider collaboration and artistic research as essential ways of working. Since then, it has evolved into an artist-run platform that provides continuous support for the work of six artists, while hosting other artworkers on a project base instigated by the platform’s collective research. Jubilee’s focus is twofold. First, it is an organisation for the production of the work of the member artists. Since 2015, these are Justin Bennett, Eleni Kamma, Vincent Meessen, Jasper Rigole, and Vermeir & Heiremans. Second, their shared interests lead to collective, performative research projects, involving collaborations with artists, curators, academic researchers and other professionals, art schools, universities and (art) institutions, and focus on the conditions of artistic practice.
For the Jubilee artists, collectivizing and sharing partnerships has been an opportunity to use the benefits of networks, visibility and other resources, while alleviating the responsibilities of fundraising, bookkeeping and legal costs. But Jubilee remains in the first place a platform for content exchange and discussion. Together, the artists constitute Jubilee’s collective artistic direction. Within their practices, Jubilee’s member artists work in diverse media and on a variety of topics, but always on a basis of collaborative research that brings in transversal knowledge from a wide range of perspectives. —

mmNew Acquisitions of the EMST Collection
Temporary Exhibition Space (-1)
27.11.2017 – 28.01.2018
Katerina Koskina, Director
mmThe National Museum of Contemporary Art, Athens (EMST) presents 39 New Acquisitions by 33 artists that were included in the Museum’s collection from 2014 to 2017. A year after the partial operation of the Museum and the opening of its temporary exhibition spaces, the first selection of its New Acquisitions (2014 – 2017) marks the enrichment of the collection and the beginning of a new dialogue with the greater cultural and artistic production inside and outside EMST and brings the Museum closer to the opening of its permanent collection spaces.
EMST, along with its intensive activity in Greece and abroad and the resolution of administrative issues that will soon lead it to the complete opening of its spaces, has expanded its collection by 150 works, reaching the total number of 1150. With long-term loans, generous donations and some acquisitions, the EMST Collection completes its existing sections with news axes and new topics. In this way the Museum “opens” its door to synergies with other international Museums, in the framework of the series EMST in the World, which for a year now has designated the Museum’s intention for extraversion and constant expansion of its “borders”, counting two exhibitions already, as well as with other individual activities.
Movement, forced and violent, fear, humanitarian, social and economic crisis that urges alternative ways of dealing and managing them internally and collectively are themes which the works presented in the exhibition deal with, having a dialectical relationship with what happens in the difficult times we live in.
mmTransculturality and interaction with the audience were and always will be aspects of an “open” museum, transforming it into a living organization, a platform for culture, dialogue, research and production, as well as of experiential knowledge and entertainment. It regards a constant redefinition of the role of a Museum of contemporary art and a constant dialogue with its era and its audience.
mmAt the same time, at the temporary exhibition space of the Museum on the Ground Floor, the interactive art project Face Forward … into my home, that was inaugurated a few days ago, is presented. The project is realized in collaboration with UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, and funded by the European Commission.
mmThe necessity of the social role of the Museum and its active participation in top humanitarian and social issues, such as the one with the refugees, converse in many ways with the works of the Museum’s collection.
EMST overcomes obstacles with the assistance of the State, artists, donors, friends and its audience and it is a living example of the actualization of optimism, with its decisive turn towards the world.

mmmDwell, Act, Transform
2–17 November 2017
The exhibition Dwell, Act, Transform shows artistic research trajectories conducted by the research groups of Minerva Art Academy within the Bachelors, Masters and PhD. Artistic research is a relatively new form of research which uses the attitude and working methods of artists and designers during the research process.
The artistic research projects in the north as 'making' practices are always connected to the social and material environment in which the research is taking place. Anthropologist Tim Ingold calls this a position of dwell. From this position the transformative power of artistic action applies to both the maker and the environment. Growing into the world, the world grows in them.

In TAKE OVER hierarchy is way out, the Anonymous Group of Artists is in constant transition. Constantly there will be a take over, no-one is in control. The audience is invited to participate. Because people take over from each other it is unclear who made the products.
As tools there will be machines with different printing techniques and each with their specific limitations like old stencil machines, Gestetners, cash-printers, a copier a.o.
The activities are all related to the philosophy of Woodstone Kugelblitz.

mmTerra Mediterranea: In Action
An exhibition of contemporary art, a conference and a series of parallel actions
Exhibition Opening: 7 April 2017, 20:00
Pafos2017, European Capital of Culture presents in Nicosia and in Pafos Terra Mediterranea: In Action, a project that includes a major contemporary art exhibition, an international conference and a series of parallel actions with the participation of a great number of artists from Cyprus and abroad. The project is organised by the Pierides Foundation and the Nicosia Municipal Arts Centre (NiMAC) and is curated by Dr Yiannis Toumazis.
Terra Mediterranea: In Action aims at detecting, investigating and presenting the reflections of contemporary artists on today’s universal landscape of economic, political, religious, social, but also deeply existential crisis of identity, especially as viewed through “Mediterranean” eyes, from both a political and a poetic stance.
The tragedies currently taking place in the Mediterranean Basin bring again to the fore the importance of this enclosed sea, which may be characterised as a “liquid continent” that is an extremely political and politicised space. One could also argue that the Mediterranean is for Europe the “irrational underbelly that brings disorder, border breaching, colonial phantoms, and an uncanny claim to a common, mythically glorious, ancient past.” [rivistapolitics.wordpress.com]. Today, this multifaceted and complicated entity, for years marginalised in western eyes as an orientalist haven of corruption and backwardness, has become an obvious and unavoidable focus of political action.
In particular, the Terra Mediterranea: In Action exhibition intends to illustrate how, in this era of globalisation and the increased visibility of “peripheral” artistic activity, contemporary artists from the Mediterranean region and the international art scene negotiate issues of history, memory and politics. The exhibition includes a variety of presentational formats such as visual works, performances, theoretical discussions, film screenings, talks, literature and poetry readings, public interventions and educational programmes.
A different version of the project was organised and presented in collaboration with Halle 14 in Leipzig, in September 2016, co-curated by Yiannis Toumazis and Michael Arzt.

mmWhy relooking at caricature today?
Caricature is a satirical reaction to and a comment upon reality, it cannot exist without referring to a certain thing, person, situation that pre-exists.
My research proposal for A/R will evolve around the form of representation of a body that has to do with excess, simulacrum, grotesque and its potential to link to and trace the social today.

mmIN SITU : OUT OF PLACE
FILMPROGRAM with Eleni Kamma
at Palazzina Reale, Piazza della Stazione 50, Florence
16 and 24 March 2017, from 6.30 pm
With: Maya Schweizer, Mario Rizzi, Eleni Kamma, Karolina Bregula, Rebecca Ann Tess, Sophie Reinhold, Nico Joana Weber, Loretta Fahrenholz, Ei Arakawa & Henning Bohl, Clemens von Wedemeyer
Every year, a large number of international artists are invited to the Villa Romana in Florence. Villa Romana Fellows live in Florence for ten months, while invited guest artists either stay in the city for several months or spend a few days there for an exhibition. Over the years, many of them have also filmed in the city and the region. We will be showing a selection of these films in cooperation with the Fondazione Architetti (FAF) on 16 March at the Palazzina Reale, which was built by Giovanni Michelucci in 1935.
The first evening's seven films focus on various historical, political and social contexts and questions of artistic narration. However, the films also show that Florence and the IN SITU environment continue to be a place of international artistic production.
The second part of the program, OUT OF PLACE, concerns reflections of urban realities and architectural storage spaces around the world. New films by Loretta Fahrenholz and Clemens von Wedemeyer will be presented for the first time in Italy. These two artists, like Nico Joana Weber and Ei Arakawa, have lived and worked in Florence as Villa Romana Fellows.

mmWe, people in transition
at Research Centre Art & Society at Platform Minerva,Groningen
28/10 - 9/11/2016
Opening: Friday 28 October, from 15:00 - 17.30.
The exhibition We,people in transition shows a selection of the projects which the research group Image in Context carried out during the past four years. The title of the exhibition emphasizes how not only our environment is in transition, but how we people are as well. The visual encounters in this exhibition, have not only recorded this transition, they also caused it. We, people in transition is open from 28 October to 9 November 2016 in Platform Minerva (Praediniussingel 59, Groningen).
The exhibition demonstrates how artists, together with other people, redefine both their artistry and the context in which we function. The artist's contribution – with his open vision, his questioning attitude and the power to connect people – is very important in bringing about a different way of looking, at each other and at our environment.
With, amongst others Lino Hellings, Eleni Kamma, Ahmet Polat, Andrea Stultiens, Herman van Hoogdalem

Curated by Michael Arzt & Yiannis Toumazis
The Mediterranean Sea and its coasts create a »liquid« continent that has been shaped since time immemorial by the exchange of people, goods and knowledge. Disparaged by the West as backwards and corrupt, it has moved into the focus of world events through the Arab Spring, as well as civil wars and banking and governmental crises.
This exhibition looks at this turbulent phase through over 20 critical and poetic artistic perspectives on »Terra Mediterranea«, investigating instead the dividing, the connecting.
In cooperation with the NiMAC - Nicosia Municipal Arts Centre in Cyprus.
With an extensive program of events, HALLE 14 presents the exhibition from September 17 to November 20, 2016.
Festival at Palais de Tokyo, Paris
03.09. – 04.09.2016
From noon until midnight
Opening Saturday, September 3rd at 11am
Brussels, the multifaceted and interdisciplinary capital, comes to light at the Palais de Tokyo.
Over the weekend of September 3 & 4, 2016, more than 30 artists, comprising visual artists, performers, choreographers and video makers based in Brussels, will be invited to the Palais de Tokyo by Indiscipline, selected by a curatorial team of WIELS (Brussels' contemporary art centre) , Kunstenfestivaldesarts (Performing Arts Festival) and the Wallonie-Bruxelles Théâtre/Danse agency. Coming from around 15 different countries, these artists will present works from diverse crossover disciplines, pushing a number of our symbolic, physical, cultural and linguistic boundaries.
Within the space of a few years, Brussels has turned into an international platform dedicated to emerging artists and to artistic experimentation. Artists from all around the world gather there to find a breeding ground in which to showcase their talents. Characterized by their artistic risks, local artists don’t seem to share any common ground, other than their undisciplined nature and their interdisciplinary bias.
Nida Doctoral School session with Eleni Kamma
Vilnius Academy of Arts (VAA) and Aalto University School of Arts
Nida Art Colony, Neringa,Lithuania
22.08. – 28.08.2016
one-week courses featuring seven lecturers, academics and selected doctoral students who will reflect on the value of artist placements in non-arts organisations such as business, political and science bodies.
The idea of the “CO-ACTION” 2016 summer course is to examine the value of artists’ placements in non-arts organisations, such as business, political and science bodies. This idea rests on the assumption that representatives of creative professions (such as artists, curators, architects, designers) are no longer romantic lonely creators. In order to design a viable way to organise such placements where artists would work in non-arts fields, this course aims to discuss and research various contemporary art practices that have been engaged in similar activity. “CO-ACTION” is mainly inspired by the British artists’ collective Artist Placement Group (APG), founded by Barbara Steveni and John Latham. APG claimed that the role of the artists in 1970’s society was limited to aesthetic problems, and APG’s purpose was to expand this role.
We are planning to ask the following questions in the upcoming course: what might follow if we as artists and researchers take up the role of the ‘social visionary’, as suggested by Olinde Rodrigues in 1825¹. Such roles are often used in financial and management consultancy services to perform creatively and successfully, so might it also be a way for the arts to adapt themselves to the current system of production? What are the dangers and motives of resistance within such systems? What are the methods used by social visionaries and how do they overlap with the modes of production in creative industries?

mmWithout pause, dialogues
LOOP Festival, Barcelona
Venue: Reial Cercle Artístic
Carrer Arcs, 5, 08002, Barcelona
26/05 - 10/06/2016
Without Pause, Dialogues is an exhibition project made up of a dozen perspectives that establish six common lines of research. It is built around two determining factors: a formal one, which is concerned with matters unrelated to the work itself, and a conceptual one, which emerges from the desire for dialogue between the works in the form of diptychs (two adjacent screens). The dialogue fostered by the diptychs reinforces and highlights the contents of each one of the projects, thus creating a feedback loop between them.Artists: Maria Ruido, Sarah Vanagt & Katrien Vermeire, Ria Pacquée, Lúa Coderch, Patricia Dauder, Elias Heuninck, Jordi Colomer, Eleni Kamma, Jordi Cané & Lisa Bause, Pieter Geenen, Raquel Friera and Els Opsomer.
Curator: Imma Prieto

mmSound of Silence
Sounding City is an annual exhibition that explores sound art and the boundaries between art, sound and music. The various installations bring together the three different disciplines. Tangible sound. Audible image. Sound of Silence focuses on quiet or barely audible sound work by sound artists. There is increased attention for silence in our society. In the bustle of today’s city, there is more than ever a need for quietude. Yet silence is also the benchmark against which sound is measured. No matter how paradoxical it may sound: silence and sound cannot exist without one another. Many sound artists share this fascination and create installations on the fringes of the audible. As a reflection on sound or as an invitation to more intense listening. Sound of Silence mixes works of both Flemish and internationally renowned artists, and starts with an opening performance and a concert on the same theme.
With: Met: Christoph De Boeck (BE), Stijn Demeulenaere (BE), Aernoudt Jacobs (BE), Rolf Julius (DE), Eleni Kamma (GR), Christina Kubisch (DE), Hans Peter Kuhn (DE), Steve Roden (VS), Stefaan Quix (BE), Akio Suzuki (JP), Esther Venrooy & Hans Demeulenaere (BE), Bram Vreven (NL)

mmDE LA NÉCESSITÉ DE S’ENGAGER
Un débat organisé dans le cadre du séminaire ‘Après l’école'
Le mercredi 13 avril de 18h à 20h à l’auditoire Creuz
Jessica Gysel est une éditrice et consultante vivant entre Bruxelles et Amsterdam. Elle est la fondatrice et rédactrice en chef de Girls Like Us magazine, publication bi-annuelle explorant de nouveaux modèles de pensée et d’action pour un avenir plus féministe et moins capitaliste. Possédant une expérience en tant que consultante en marketing et spécialisée dans l’étude des groupes, scènes et communautés, elle navigue avec aisance entre les concepts de corporate hell et d’utopie du DIY (Do It Yourself).
Eleni Kamma est une artiste grecque et cypriote basée à Bruxelles et Maastricht. Son travail, alliant écriture, vidéo, dessin et installations, aborde les notions d'identité, de mémoire, d'authenticité. Sa recherche questionne la distribution et le partage des connaissances, explore les possibilités d'une future architecture rejetant les systèmes binaires de pensée et préconise l’imagination de modèles ‘autres’.
Daniel Vander Gucht est docteur en sociologie, chef de travaux à l’Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB) où il dirige le groupe de recherche en sociologie de l’art et de la culture ainsi que la Revue de l’Institut de sociologie. Directeur de la maison d'édition La Lettre volée, Il est l’auteur, notamment, de L’Art contemporain au miroir du musée (La Lettre volée, 1999) ; Art et politique (Labor, 2004) ; Ecce homo touristicus (Labor, 2006) et de L'expérience politique de l'art. Retour sur la définition de l'art engagé (Impressions nouvelles, 2014).
Médiateur : Céline Gillain, professeur à La Cambre
Eleni Kamma participates in Breaking Crisis, the film program of Transmediale Berlin.
Under the name Conversation Piece, transmediale reboots the format of the post-digital culture event, creating a transitory space for discussion of the anxieties of late capitalism. Rather than a single-themed festival with separate exhibition and program sections, artistic and research practice will unfold live through discussions, workshops, temporary installations, performances, and various hybrid formats. Through the thematic streams that function as conversation starters, Anxious to Act, Anxious to Make, Anxious to Share, and Anxious to Secure, the Conversation Piece creates an occasion to reflect upon past transmediale themes while resolutely focusing on the ambiguity of present digital culture.

Yar bana bir eğlence. Notes on Parrhesia, Eleni Kamma, BE/NL 2015, 37'
The transformation of Western industrial society into a service and information economy is coupled with the unrestricted subjugation of the environment to market imperatives. Financial transactions are executed by computer programs in milliseconds: money makes money. The unequal distribution of wealth and security, evidenced in global refugee movements, produces a sense of permanent crisis. Conversely, new forms of solidarity, resistance, and struggles for democratic rights and economic participation are emerging. Against the background of these volatile developments, this film selection presents an impressive range of artistic and critical analyses of the present.

is a multidisciplinary exhibition and performance program that deals with issues of post-colonialism, memory, identity and narration.
Gathering together artists originally from Portugal, England, Rwanda, Greece, Germany, Argentine, Hungary, Spain, Serbia, Poland and Taiwan, who work in performance, object, photography, video and installation, L’INTRU aims to question these potent issues: postcolonialism, personal and collective memory, narration and identity. It not only asks who the invaders are, it also speaks of the personal narratives that these forces provoke within the individual. After a successful run in Vienna, the exhibition is being brought to London with the intention of engaging with local issues: capitalism, gentrification and the cuts. Join us for a packed performance program, on the front row will be some of the most prominent London artists.
