They do not know it but they are doing it, K.Marx

I say that I did it and I do not deny it, Antigone

 

The work is conceived as a site-specific installation for the exhibition “Summer in the Middle of Winter” in Kunsthalle Athena. Its starting point are two phrases deriving from very different contexts: “They do not know it, but they are doing it” by Marx and “I say that I did it and I do not deny it” by Antigone. The phrases are placed as mirror images on the two sides of the central wall of the exhibition.

 

The project explores the notion of political and ethical responsibility and the schisms that surround it in the current “crisis” discourse. It is a reference to a conflicting yet ambiguous relationship: that between the subject and the object of a severe economic and social policy.
