Responding to an invitation by Signal, Radio Athènes is bringing to Malmö four distinct projects by Eleni Bagaki, BLESS, Rallou Panagiotou and Vangelis Vlahos as well as titles from its library in Athens, Greece assembled by artists, curators and writers we have worked with. Books selected by Darren Bader, Kirsty Bell, Josephine Pryde, Teddy Coste, Thomas Boutoux, Kerstin Cmelka, to name a few, will become part of the Signal library available to peruse in the months to come and in an environment infused with the spirit of BLESS.

As the sequence of autonomous presentations unfolds, I. Economy Class (Eleni Bagaki), II. Two-Hander (Rallou Panagiotou) and III. This Event has Now Ended (Vangelis Vlahos) facts and fictions derived from the constant and unique interaction of conflicting forces—corporeality and intangibility, exchange and reification, reality and mediation—operate at different levels and intensities.

A Ryan Air flight (Bagaki), a street-seller’s bench (Panagiotou) and the notes of Greece’s finance minister, Euclid Tsakalotos (Vlahos) trigger these presentations, all conceived in 2016.

Organized by Helena Papadopoulos, founding director of Radio Athènes, institute for the advancement of contemporary visual culture.

II. Two-Hander, Rallou Panagiotou February 3–March 5, 2017
