Project "Periptero" Der Kulturkiosk, Kassel, Germany 8 June-30 July 2017
The Greek-German project "Periptero" in Kassel(Germany) is an international project between Athens and Kassel, a collaboration between Research and Teaching Center of Entrepreneurship Education of University of Kassel,( Germany) and Moving School as an incubator for ideas, in the context of Documenta 14.Androniki worked on the perspective through which the Periptero is seen throughout the eyes of the young children.
Ludwig Möller Moving School and his team -the inspirational and motivational heart of the project “Periptero" - worked with the Documenta 14 theme “Learning From Athens” and paved the way for the artists to create a place that inspires curiosity for new cultural understanding through experimental exchange, by using the means of the traditional idea of the Greek kiosk! To achieve this change of perspective beyond the usual prejudices and stereotypes, the students developed a concept for an art based and social entrepreneurial oriented platform to wake the curiosity on experimental forms of cultural exchange and mediation.
The form of implementation is a “learned“institution of daily life: the Periptero, a Greek Kiosk. For in Greek life a Periptero is not only a stand, it is a social institution, and what’s more, in as much at it regards licensing an instrument of Greek social policy. Androniki worked on the perspective through which the Periptero is seen throughout the eyes of the young children. Shorter than adults and attached to their calfs, kids obtain a very special view of Periptero, trying always to find the significant yellow color of the tents. As they raise their eyes, they detect vague and non-understandable for their age, signs, letters and images created by the numerous newspapers and magazines hanging on periptero. A furious canvas of signs under the “yellow” sun of the tent, next to the feet of unknown people or familiar to the kid, interweaves the most identical atmosphere and the most powerful imagery throughout we experienced periptero as children. The 2 posters exposed at the Periptero Kiosk in Kassel are part of her project for the demands of the modules at 'Vakalo Art & Design College during her studies there pursuing the “MA in Visual Communication”.
