IdeasCity proposes that Athens is everywhere. As a primary flash point in the rapidly escalating refugee crisis, Athens has been facing unprecedented challenges in the recent history of Western civilisation, yet the city also represents a destination, a centre of hope and survival, and a place where one can conceive new realities.
The OS pod structures that have earlier served at IdeasCity Detroit were re-used during the residency at Athens Conservatory for IdeasCity Athens, yet have been redressed with local fabrics, chosen by textile designer Antigone Lentzos
