Netting the Work, Part III BETON7 (Athens)

Netting the Work is a project that merges performative interventions, political insecurities, psychological frameworks and a process-oriented timeline both in Berlin (DE) and Besançon (FR) during the MPA-B in May and  the Excentricités Performance Festival in April respectively. Third and last part of this nomadic project will be presented in the context of Visions-V_Ideas, Performances and will be held at the Athenian BETON7, a space where the travelling and deptocratic tendencies of 16 artists that followed Netting the Work in its wandering throughout Europe will finally merge.
