Multilogue facilitated a roving, participatory poetic experiment that sought to frame a collective witnessing of moments occurring through varying social constellations and conurbations of Athens in order to transcribe a series of narrativities of the social imaginary. Writing the present through describing a future.
It took place in different public spaces across Athens including public squares and avenues, Pedion tou Areos, Green Park and other outdoor locations in the city over the weekend of 25 - 26 June 2016 as part of the self-organised Performance Biennnial: No Future - and -
27 June, 20:00: A gathering and radio broadcast at Beton7, V_Ideas, Performances, Athens 2016
Multilogue acknowledges the legacy of language events and collaborative writing processes by art movements in the past - reframing these processes with reference to a climate of precarity, the increased colonisation of imagination by neoliberal and global economic processes and effects on social space – in which shared narrativity might enable the agency to imagine together-otherwise.
