Fragments of truth

INNER OUTFITS

Curators: LOUISA KARAPIDAKI – CLEOPATRA FATOUROU – ELISABETH ROMBERG

This year the platform Fragments of truth presents a series of artists who were inspired by the manifesto of Charlotte Lindsay :

“This short and ironical manifesto describes a list of responsibilities, which should be required of a person before they enter into war.”

The initiative, which is highlighted in this platform project, seeks to explore how a language for opposition is introduced in contemporary art. Voices talking about migration in Turkey and Greece, indigenous who fight for rights, political subjectivity, sexual discrimination or transgenderism: both political and artistic practices are challenging the system’s structures and its pre-existing models. This concept, which is presented in the platform will be developed further in an exhibition, that will be hosted initially in Athens and then in other venues throughout  Europe. The  project will take an investigative approach, asking contemporary artists from various european countries to imagine what their motivation for war would be, and what their own armor would look like. The exhibition will focus on the current views of contemporary art, which, amongst other things, is seeking to draw an alternative political and poetic map of Europe, than that designed by the European Union.

The exhibition will travel to Kristiansand, Norway, where the previous experiences and works will shape an exhibition and performance, and a workshop will take place with three contemporary Norwegian artists.

The things that should be involved in a war before you join

Make you own outfit

Decide upon your insignia

Name your battle

Identify your enemy

Make contact

Agree a time, date and location

Plan your route

Make your packed lunch

Pack your bags

Say goodbye to family

Place a photo in your inner breast pocket

Begin your journey

Hope for the best

Be prepared for peace
