Echoes of Eco, Two Walks in Athens
06 - Präsentation
Echoes of Eco is two walks in Athens during which a group of people gathers to witness, produce documents at, and annotate sites in Athens where the economy touches the ecology of the city. Economy and ecology, often presumed to be in opposition, echo a common root—oikos, a household or dwelling place—respectively through its management and the interrelation of its parts. Echoes of Eco is a set of walks in Athens that brings together an open group of researchers, activists, artists, onlookers, and passersby to visit and discuss local sites chosen due to their connections between economy and ecology. The invisible hand of the “free” market is visible in physical spaces; it is more apparent, tangible, and everyday. We witness, gather documents, think through, and annotate sites in Athens, dwelling places saturated by economic debates and repercussions, as well as reconfigurations. We visit sites in Athens, each day starting at 5 pm and lasting around four hours. We meet at A-Letheia kiosk Psyrri on day one (July 14), and at Kypselis kiosk on day two (July 15). Everyone is invited to suggest site locations, as well as documents (objects, artifacts, images, and texts) that address an experience of economic and ecological interactions. Echoes of Eco is hosted by the experimental publishing collective continentcontinent.cc.
