“Financial Consequences – International MultiMedia Poetry Festival” challenges the perceptions of the economic crises and providing a new point of view via a wide variety of mediums. For the last 10 years, we see entrepreneurs, economists, bankers, technocrats and politicians to dominate the public opinion- now is the time for poets to explain to all of them the social impact of their decisions and their politics. The social awareness and sensitivity of poets – in collaboration with video artists and musicians- invited from countries crushed by the economic crises offer us the best possible view to invisible sites of social life, offer us the opportunity to understand and realize the Financial Consequences of economic crises in the everyday life of all of us and especially of people in suffer.
The Institute for Experimental Arts was founded in 2008 in Athens- Greece as a non-profit platform of creative expression and research in the fields of theater, performance art, digital media, installation, poetry and art theory. The Institute is committed to exist as an open meeting point for poets-writers, directors, actors, theater engineers/ technicians, performance artists, photographers, video artists and the writers who develop new analytical tools on contemporary art, media & communication

Saturday 9 February 2019 at 16:00
Part A: Introductory Lectures – Duration 30 minutes
Lecture by the world-known professor of Anthropology David Graeber (London School of Economics) “How social and economic structure influences the Art World”
Influential anthropologist David Graeber, known for his 2011 volume Debt: The First 5000 Years speaks about the correlation between the cultural sphere and society. The intellectuals and the artists create an imaginary way to criticize the economic system in any era. Art can overcome hegemonic frameworks and acknowledge other possible worlds, offer us the opportunity to understand better the marginalized social entities. Social exclusion is the process in which individuals or people are systematically blocked from (or denied full access to) various rights, opportunities and resources that are normally available to members of a different group, and which are fundamental to social integration and observance of human rights within that particular group (e.g., housing, employment, healthcare, civic engagement, democratic participation, and due process). As the economic crises go deeper in time more people face the effects of exclusion. Art and social sciences can give voice to the voiceless. Especially young social aware poets can give us a clear view of the real social effect of the financial consequences.
“Poetry and Revolt- Political Art in the 21st Century” Lecture by Tasos Sagris- theatre director, poet, activist. Art director of the Financial Consequences festival
Tasos Sagris, known in the English speaking audience as co-editor of the book ” We are an Image from the Future- The Greek Revolt of Dec.2008″ introduce us in a new way of understanding the political art in 21st century.

Part C Financial Consequences
Multimedia LIVE Performances

Duration 4 1/2 hours – starts at 18.30

Poets, musicians and visual artists create a vibrant atmosphere with multimedia poetry readings and live poetry performances. Spoken Poetry has been growing over the last years. A collection of contemporary poets from countries faced to financial crisis begin to build up an important social role in our times. Poetry communities preserve the possibility of mutual understanding by reading and performing it.
Poetry responses to economical crisis, social exclusion and conflict, the challenges society faces. Poetry has a special role under difficult financial and political conditions. As Wallace Stevens believed: “Poets help the political beings to live their lives, not by telling them what to think. They do so by creating spaces where one individual imagination can activate another and those imaginations can be together. Poems are imaginative structures built out of words, one that any reader or listener can enter. Live Poetry Performances are places of freedom, enlivenment, and true communion.”

Concept
The Modern Panic exhibitions are inspired by the work of the original Panic Movement, which was comprised of artists Alejandro Jodorowsky, Fernando Arrabal and Roland Topor, who created provocative live arts events in France during 1960s. The works intended aim was to slice through the bourgeois art world with the aim to be a catalyst towards liberation of thought within the viewer.  Modern Panic follows in the footsteps of this movement and exhibits the new wave of panic artists.

Modern Panic, an annual exhibition of surreal, controversial and provocative art curated by Guerilla Zoo founder James Elphick, is reincarnated in 2018 for Modern Panic IX. Bringing together over 70 visual artists and live art practitioners offering a commentary on our chaotic contemporary world and the darker reaches of human nature with works that shock, disturb and confront.

PHOTOGRAPHIC PROJECT ON FEMALE NAKED

My Nude Female Vision begins with a need: Searching for sensations and perceptions of self through the appropriation of one’s own body.
In my shots the nakedness appears contracted and implosed, turned and returned to an interior; it is not an expansion of a body that is displayed, but a revelation of a being and of what it hides. Of a mystical body, which encloses a clot of mystery. Self-portraying postponement of a fracture …
Indeed, today, more than ever, in a society that has dissected and subdivided the material dimension from the spiritual one, nudity has become an expression of a taxed and inculcated identity through devious patterns in which women are not recognized and increasingly refuse .
An “expropriated” identity, driven by the fullness of its integrity, of its role in the natural order of things.
So in my shots the search is just that of an original, untouched original – almost biblical – still in tension between purity and corruption.
