The Vilém Flusser Archive and the transmediale would like to invite you on Friday the 25th of May at 1830 to the Aula of the UdK (Grunewaldstr. 2-5), for the screening of the documentary Plowing the Time (2010), by the Kostas Kolimenos. Plowing the Time tells the stories, the small everyday struggles of the people in Athens. These stories comprise the recent history of Greece, still to recent to be objectively represented, but at the same time to intense to be left to ferment slowly to a shared narrative self-representation. The history is inadvertently written by men and women on the street, where resistance manifest itself brutal, naked, beautiful and ugly at the same time, but nonetheless honest.
Kostas Kolimenos is invited as part of the Drachma Project, a research initiative on the current economic and political history in Greece, hosted by the Vilém Flusser Archive and the transmediale. After the screening there will be a discussion about the current state of affairs in Greece with the director and the rest of the participants of the Project.
