Our Fellow, Alexis Fidetzis, participates in the Taxi Driver Poetry Workshop takin place within the context of the 6th Athens Biennale ANTI, in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut Athen.
The Taxi Driver Poetry Workshop has been conceived as an experimental and unpredictable language “class” at GiGi, a space dedicated to Greek-German love and togetherness. Through a guided tour following the flow of “German Traces”, the workshop will end up at Esperia Palace for inhabiting the space with poetic moods and performative attitudes. Language teachers, students, administrative staff of the Goethe Institute, and visual artists, will coexist considering the means of interpreting a poem through an artwork and vice versa. Based on the German-Greek stereotypical constructions occupying the Athenian streets, we will attempt to approach and poeticize our “speech” and that of the taxi drivers of our heart.
Participants: Amalia Charikiopoulou, Marios Chatziprokopiou, Alexis Fidetzis, Eva Giannakopoulou, Matthias Jakus, Vasiliki Sifostratoudaki, Dimitris Soudias, The Flower Girls, Eleftherios Varlamis Stefas, Markella Xilogiannopoulou.
